Fence going up around Walter White's house in Albuquerque New Mexico

Fence going up around Walter White's house in Albuquerque New Mexico

The award-winning series features a famous scene in which Bryan Cranston's character, Walter White, throws a large pizza onto the roof after being locked out of the house by his wife - a scene which has since become a meme.

The owners of the New Mexico house that appeared on "Breaking Bad" are sick of people tossing pizza on their roof.

Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house that served as a setting for the AMC series, chose to install a 6-foot high wrought iron fence outside the home after years of vandalism, trespassing and rude behavior from fans of the show. Oh, and apparently people keep stealing rocks.

"We just feel like we can't leave because when we do, something happens", said Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the home, in an interview with KOB4.

'We don't want to gate ourselves in, ' she told the news channel.

In fact, the family who lives in the Breaking Bad house, as it's called, has lost track of the number of times the place has been vandalized.

But after one pizza too many, the homeowners of the 1,910-square-foot, one-story, single-family Albuquerque house have made a decision to take a stand. Joanne Quintana announced this week that Breaking Bad fans can take their dough-hurling elsewhere, because she is erecting a "six-foot-high wrought-iron fence", according to KOB4. "They park in front of our driveway and block us in", a neighbor told KRQE, an Albuquerque news channel.

"They're throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that".
