A former University of New Mexico football player has been found guilty of robbing a U.S. mail carrier and faces up to 10 years in prison, authorities announced Monday.

Prosecutors said Boyce and a co-defendant forced a mail carrier out of his truck in the International District in January 2022 and demanded his keys at gunpoint before a neighbor who witnessed the altercation intervened.

Boyce fled the scene, and authorities later executed a search warrant on Boyce’s apartment, confiscated two semi-automatic guns and a revolver, and arrested him.

Mr. Boyce has pleaded not guilty. His attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Boyce, who transferred to New Mexico from a junior college in California, appeared in eight games for the Lobos as a linebacker in 2017.
