ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (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.
