ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A suspected car thief who’s passenger shot at police is still behind bars Friday night.
Johnny Kocsmar picked up a hitchhiker last month after he allegedly stole a car warming up near Fourth Street and Osuna.
Police later saw Kocsmar speeding on I-25 and followed the stolen car until Kocsmar’s passenger fired at them.
Friday in court, Kocsmar’s attorney argued he was only the driver and not aware of the hitchhiker’s intentions.
The judge wasn’t convinced and didn’t let him bond out.
