In true Breaking Bad style, a senior professor at Tel Aviv University was arrested for producing and selling drugs to – and using – his students.

The professor, a resident of central Israel in his sixties, serves as head of a dental laboratory at a recognized university in Israel. 

The police became aware of the professor's actions as they fought tooth and nail in an undercover investigation. Upon searching the teacher's house, police found date rape drugs, crystal meth and hashish.

The lecturer, according to initial suspicions, prepared the drugs in his home and sold them through and to his students. Officers from the Yavneh police station find large quantities of drugs there and arrested him on site.

He will be brought before a court of law on Monday to have his arrest extended.
