It was the best of crimes, it was the worst of crimes.
In 2015, Jonathan Carlos Ray found himself being carted off to jail after his mom called the police to report her son had broken into her house to steal her soup.
It was a pretty weird crime, but apparently, mom’s “pozole” (a traditional Mexican soup that’s made with pork or chicken) is a family favorite.
According to the complaint, he asked if he could have some but mom said no. Yet despite her telling him to keep his hands off it, he simply couldn’t help himself. Later that day, she arrived home to find her home had been broken into—and the only thing missing was her pot of pozole.
The charges have since been dismissed.
We can’t help but wonder if the case was thrown out because the defendant had eaten the evidence.
