Accused carjacker taken into federal custody

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man who got away from police after a 10 hour SWAT situation is now in federal custody.

Oscar Anchondo was arrested last week in Bernalillo after a woman said he stole her car. When officers arrived to check it out, they found Anchondo with the car and arrested him.

Just a week before, APD chased Anchondo to a trailer park after a carjacking, but he got away.

The feds are now charging Anchondo with being a felon in possession of a firearm. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
