ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal grand jury has filed a superseding indictment adding new charges against a man accused in the armed robberies of two Albuquerque businesses earlier this year.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Andrew Steven Romero, of Albuquerque, will be transferred from state custody to answer to the superseding indictment.

A federal grand jury in May charged Romero with being a felon in possession of a firearm in Bernalillo County.

The superseding indictment adds four new counts to the original indictment - two for allegedly robbing businesses engaged in interstate commerce and the others for allegedly brandishing firearms during crimes of violence.

Prosecutors say Romero was arrested in connection with the armed robberies of a CVS Pharmacy on April 6 and a Giant convenience store and gas station on May 26.
