ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — An Albuquerque man who's a former Sandia National Laboratories employee has been arraigned on charges of theft and conversion of federal funds.

Prosecutors say 37-year-old Joshua Cordova appeared in federal court Tuesday.

Cordova previously trained military, law enforcement and emergency response personnel in the use of equipment developed by Sandia Labs.

Authorities say Cordova had government-funded credit cards to purchase needed equipment and supplies.

An indictment alleges Cordova used the credit cards to purchase thousands of dollars in merchandise for himself including expensive jewelry, clothing, sports equipment, electronics and appliances.

Prosecutors say Cordova is out of custody pending trial and he faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
