FORT MEYERS, FLORIDA- A man who won a raffle to watch the series finale of the "Breaking Bad" TV show with the cast is accused of imitating the show.

Ryan Lee Carroll is charged with running a drug distribution ring.

Authorities say Carroll sold synthetic marijuana and shipped it across the U.S. to customers from his home in Fort Meyers.

The say he used a cement mixer to create the drugs with two other men.

They're accused of using the U.S. Postal Service to deliver the goods and more than $1 million worth of the synthetic weed was confiscated when he was busted.
