ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted an Albuquerque man on carjacking and firearms.

Prosecutors say 30-year-old Kevin Folse made his initial court appearance on the three-count indictment Friday and will be detained pending trial.

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 is 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.

Police say Folse eluded capture several times before being arrested on July 3.
