The homeowners of the Albuquerque home that appeared in the popular AMC series reportedly endured years of people visiting their house and throwing pizza on the roof, mimicking a scene when drug kingpin Walter White angrily threw a pie on top of the garage.

"We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous", said Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house. Well, they're not, and everyone from Vince Gilligan to Jonathan Banks has asked them to stop annoying the nice, non-meth dealing people who live there.

The current owners of that former "Breaking Bad" home in Northeast Heights have quite simply had enough and have installed a six-foot fence around the property in a bid to keep fans - and the many pizzas - out.

This decision did not come easy: "We don't want to gate ourselves in", Quintana told KOB4. "They park in front of our driveway and block us in", one said. "We're the ones who's being locked up".

"There is nothing original, or amusing, or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof", Gilligan said. According to Quintana during the first Balloon Fiesta after they moved in, she reckons the numbers went into the hundreds. In 15 minutes, a KOB news crew counted almost 10 tourists.

Quintana added that it is not just the pizzas, as some fans steal rocks from the home's landscaping to take home as souvenirs.

In its five-season run that ended in 2013, Breaking Bad grew from obscure oddity to one of the most celebrated, acclaimed television series of the Peak TV era.
