ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A federal jury has convicted an Albuquerque man on carjacking and firearms charges.
Prosecutors say jurors deliberated about four hours Thursday before finding 30-year-old Kevin Folse guilty Thursday following a four-day trial.
Folse was indicted in the case in July. He remains in federal custody pending a sentencing hearing, which hasn’t been scheduled.
According to a criminal complaint, Folse was driving a stolen vehicle on June 30 and allegedly tried to run down an Albuquerque police officer who jumped out of the way.
Folse also was accused of carjacked a running vehicle and threatening the 13-year-old boy inside with a gun.
Authorities say Folse was prohibited from possession firearms or ammunition because he’s a convicted felon.
Albuquerque police say Folse eluded capture several times before being arrested on July 3.
