CHICAGO, IL. (February 17, 2014) —
Oh, the ironic justice! A Chicago man busted recently for running a meth lab was wearing a “Los Pollos Hermanos” t-shirt when he was booked.
Daniel Kowalski, 21, was arrested at his LaGrange Highlands, Ill., home on Feb. 17 after law enforcement received a tip that he may be cooking meth, said a press release from the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.
Inside his home, investigators found a Walter White-like meth cooking lab complete with glass beakers, burners, chemicals and instructions.
They also found 12 jars of psychedelic mushrooms, the report said.
His t-shirt made reference to the fictional fried chicken restaurant owned by meth kingpin Gustavo Fring from the popular AMC series “Breaking Bad.”
Authorities said Kowalski was on an electronic monitoring device after being arrested in 2013 on suspicion of running a meth lab.
He has been charged this time on two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials, and possession of methamphetamine precursors, all felonies.
