A guy in New York accidentally tipped off the police to his own secret meth lab when he called them about a break-in at the very spot. This lab reminded folks of the one from the famous “Breaking Bad” show.

23-year-old Matthew Leshinsky from Farmingville, over on Long Island, ended up pleading guilty to making meth illegally, among other charges, according to what the Suffolk County district attorney’s office shared on Friday. 

On June 7, 2023, around 3:30 in the morning, Leshinsky dialed 911, saying his business, Quantitative Laboratories LLC, was being burglarized. When Suffolk County cops got there, they spotted broken glass at the front door. Inside, they stumbled upon a hidden lab cranking out meth and a trippy substance known as dimethyltryptamine, or DMT.

“This defendant was operating a Breaking Bad-style drug lab and tried to conceal it under the guise of a legitimate business. He then inadvertently turned himself in when he reported that a burglary occurred at that same business,” said Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond Tierney.

Cops ended up finding a whole bunch of lab gear—over 100 pieces—plus all the chemicals needed to cook up meth, the officials shared. They also stumbled upon $40,000 in cash, some ecstasy, more than 3 ounces of meth, and a whopping 625,000 milligrams of pure ketamine.

The DA mentioned that the police also discovered around 24 big 55-gallon drums filled with something a lot like gamma hydroxybutyric acid, or GHB, which folks often call the “date rape drug.”

On Thursday, Leshinsky fessed up to nine charges, with a bunch of them for having illegal drugs. He’s set to find out his punishment in court on March 20.

“I want to thank the Suffolk County Police Department officers who keenly identified evidence of a clandestine drug lab during their initial response to the scene, as well as our prosecutors and other members of law enforcement for their collaborative efforts to further investigate this defendant and hold him accountable for the deadly drugs he put out onto the streets of Suffolk County,” said Tierney.
