ABQ woman indicted on federal gun charges

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque woman with at least 10 felony convictions has been indicted on federal firearms charges.


Miranda Gilbert

A federal grand jury handed up an indictment charging Miranda Gilbert, 30, with violating federal firearms laws. The indictment was filed Nov. 1 and unsealed on Monday.

Gilbert has been in custody for state custody in connection to probation violations.

Gilbert made headlines in August when she shot at an Albuquerque couple, who had tried to block Gilbert from leaving after she parked in their driveway.

Police and the couple circulated the photo on social media, which helped police identify Gilbert. The indictment said that Gilbert has at least ten felony convictions.

The federal indictment charges her with illegally possessing a firearm in Albuquerque on Aug. 20, which was the day she allegedly shot at the couple. And it also charges her with possessing a firearm in Guadalupe County on Aug. 21.
