This burrito is the bomb.

An Albuquerque, N.M. man wanted to go to federal prison to make the voices in his head go away. He succeeded by calling the FBI's Public Access number and threatening to send a "burrito with C-4 explosives inside of it," according to a complaint obtained by NBC news.

Brian DeMarco, 50, was arrested late last week after the alleged hoax on Tuesday, WOAI reports. Police didn't find any explosives, but they did find that DeMarco also made the same threat to another Albuquerque building the next day. He also allegedly made "terrorist bomb threats" to California in the past.

"He wanted to be sent to Federal prison," the complaint reads. "The caller said that he wanted the voices and sounds to stop."

DeMarco told investigators that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He claimed that the U.S. government planted a tracking device in his head and beamed photons into his brain, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

The bombs, he said, would have been on a timer. He said he learned how to make suitcase bombs out of manure and diesel fuel in prison.

He faces charges of violating interstate communications laws and creating a hoax.
