It’s true. According to the Albuquerque Journal, the 23-year-old texted his mother that he would drop by to eat. Ray’s mother told police she asked him not to go to the house. When she arrived, Ray entered through the back door, opened the fridge and ran off with a large pot of pozole.

“He opened the door and grabbed that big pot of pozole I had made for my kids. He knew I had made it,” said Ray’s mother to the Albuquerque Journal.

Ray’s mother, who has previously called police to remove Ray from her house, pressed charges against her son. Ray faces a felony for residential burglary. Ray’s mother also told the Albuquerque Journal, “He needs help.”

Let’s hope Ray and his mother can resolve their issues soon and get back to eating pozole together.
