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 son 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, he 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.
He was arrested on a residential burglary charge.
