ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police say an Albuquerque 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.
