(Newser) – It’s a story that’s generated it’s fair share of Breaking Bad headlines: Secondary school teacher Macphallen Kuwale was slapped with three-and-a-half years in prison after detectives say they uncovered a million-dollar cocaine operation inside his home. According to the Guardian, police found more than 100 grams of cocaine, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cutting agents, and a pressing machine in the alleged cocaine lab. As one South Wales detective told the Mirror: "He was involved in street level dealing as well as a sophisticated wholesale operation … It was totally unusual. It is not something that you come across everyday."
