The characters on Breaking Bad usually give Albuquerque, N.M., nothing but trouble.

That's changing now that producers are donating clothing from the AMC show to an emergency shelter there – giving Breaking Bad's meth-selling crooks a chance to be good guys for a change.

"We got a call from someone from Breaking Bad saying, 'Hey, we're dropping off some clothes.' Then, here they were," Jeremy Reynalds, CEO of the Joy Junction shelter, tells the AP.

Among the items donated were a burgundy robe worn by Bryan Cranston's Walter White, as well as baby clothes from Walter's daughter Holly. And there are many more boxes to go through.

Breaking Bad fans will have an opportunity to buy the clothes, as they will go on sale this week at the shelter's thrift store, with all proceeds benefiting Joy Junction.

They won't be available online, although special auctions might be possible if some of the items fail to sell at the store.
