A pastor from Woodbury United Methodist Church in Connecticut has been arrested on charges of dealing crystal methamphetamine from the church's rectory, according to local authorities.

Reverend Herbert Miller, 63, was apprehended after a tip-off led police to set up a sting operation. The arrest bears a striking resemblance to the plot of the popular TV series "Breaking Bad," with Miller being described as a lookalike of the show's protagonist, Walter White.

The local news outlet Republican-American of Waterbury reported that Miller was caught in possession of crystal methamphetamine in both rock and liquid form, along with drug paraphernalia. The Connecticut State Police issued a press release confirming the arrest.

However, this claim has not been independently verified, and further comments from the state troopers are being sought. The duration of Miller's alleged involvement in drug dealing remains unknown.
