(Newser) – See if this sounds familiar: A teacher undergoing cancer treatments has been accused of being a meth dealer. It may sound like Breaking Bad, but Boston police say Stephen Doran, 57, is the real deal, reports WHDH. He was arrested after cops say he received a package with nearly 500 grams of meth at the charter school where he worked as a math tutor.

Doran is being held on a relatively light $10,000 bail, reports the Boston Globe, perhaps because his previous jobs as a seven-term state legislator and a bank vice president speak well of his character. Police say they found more meth at Doran's condo—for a grand total of about $50,000 in street value—along with a suspicious amount of cash. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison, more than usual because the charges involve a school zone.

He should have stuck to dealing math.
