ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Jonathan Ray wanted some of his mom’s posole last week.

So much so that, police say, he broke into her Northeast Albuquerque home, made a beeline for the fridge and ran ray-350x400away with a pot of homemade posole.

“He opened the door and grabbed that big pot of posole I had made for my kids. He knew I had made it.”

— The suspect’s mother

Ray’s mom called police Nov. 29 and told officers the alleged stew theft happened the day before. She said she was going home and was parking her car in her garage when the 23-year-old Ray texted her saying he was hungry and was going to her house to eat, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.

The mom told him not to.

As soon as she walked into her house near Juan Tabo and Interstate 40, Ray ran in through the back door and went directly to the fridge. He grabbed the pot of traditional New Mexican holiday stew and ran back out, according to the complaint.

SEATAC, Wash. — A jet bridge dropped several feet Tuesday as passengers were exiting a Southwest Airlines flight at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, but no one was injured, officials said.

The end of the walkway, where it was attached to the plane, fell 6 to 8 feet. Some passengers were on the bridge at the time, but it was unclear how many, said airport spokesman Perry Cooper.

The cause of the drop was described as a mechanical failure. Thanks to a backup system — a large screw under the jetway that turns as it is raised or lowered — the bridge fell slowly, and those who were on it walked up to the gate, Cooper said.

About half of the passengers — 60 people — had exited the aircraft when the walkway fell. The rest left by a stairway brought to the other side of the plane. Read the rest of this entry »
