    The man was arrested after he ignored his mother's orders to stay away from her posole.

    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.
