It's the fifth and final season of TV's popular series "Breaking Bad," and the resolution of the dramatic storyline is super mega serious hardcore top secret. Well, it was until someone broke into star Byran Cranston's car in Albuquerque and stole the actor's script.TMZ has obtained audio of the initial call to 911 placed by Cranston to report the theft. Or, more specifically, his call to arrange for an officer to come take his report.

In the short audio file, Cranston says the thief smashed the window of his Audi and took some of his stuff. (Alas, the recording is pretty anti-climactic, unless you are stoked to hear Cranston spell out his name and speak calmly and politely to the dispatcher.)

Previously, it was reported that a man named Xavier McAfee was arrested over the weekend in connection with the theft, but that the script still hasn't been recovered.

The theft took place in New Mexico earlier in March...but it still seems we're all going to have to tune in to see how "Breaking Bad" brings things to an end this season.
