Police say an Albuquerque, New Mexico, man wanted his mother's traditional New Mexican stew so much he broke into her home and stole it.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that 23-year-old Jonathan Ray was arrested recently after he ignored his mother's orders to stay away from her posole and ran off with the holiday dish.
According to a criminal complaint, Ray sent his mom a text message saying he wanted some of her posole but she told him no.
The complaint says the mother later found her gate and garage broken and a pot of the posole missing.
Ray was arrested on a residential burglary charge. Court records didn't list an attorney for Ray.
