FORT MYERS, Fla. » Authorities say a Florida man who won a raffle to watch the series finale of AMC's "Breaking Bad" with the cast has been charged with running an interstate synthetic marijuana distribution operation.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office reports that Ryan Lee Carroll ran the operation from his Fort Myers home with two other men. He was arrested on New Year's Eve.

Authorities seized more than $1 million in synthetic marijuana during the bust.

According to deputies, the suspects used a cement mixer to create the drugs. The drugs were shipped through the U.S. Postal Service to other states.

Investigators also seized a souvenir Hazmat suit signed by "Breaking Bad" cast members. "Breaking Bad" follows a former high school teacher producing and selling meth with a previous student.
