LELAND, NC (WECT) – A man is behind bars tonight after being sentenced as a habitual felon for selling crack cocaine he marketed as "blue," saying it was more potent than regular crack.

Gregglin White was found guilty for felony sale of cocaine.

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad you will recall that the main character, Mr. White, sold crystal meth that he called "blue." Users of his "blue" meth claimed it was the purest form of the drug available.

Gregglin White will spend no less than 58 months, about 4 ½ years, with a maximum of 82 months, about 6 ½ years, in jail for his sale a crack cocaine. White was arrested after he sold crack cocaine to an undercover officer on two separate occasions.

Brunswick County Sheriff's deputies searched White's home and found more crack, and items used to manufacture and weigh the drugs.  According to officials White has several previous felony convictions that include the sale of cocaine.
