RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A former Southern California UPS driver has been found guilty of stealing dozens of guns to sell them on the black market.

The U.S. attorney's office says 37-year-old Curtis Hays or Rancho Cucamonga was convicted Thursday of 15 counts, including federal gun trafficking charges, after a six-day trial.

Evidence showed that Hays stole packages with 72 guns, including 12-gauge shotguns and .45-caliber handguns, which were supposed to be delivered to an outdoors shop.

He also stole shipments of jewelry and mobile phones that were supposed to go to Costco.

Hays faces up to 115 years in federal prison when he's sentenced by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Philips on March 30.

An associate previously pleaded guilty to selling some firearms and is scheduled for sentencing on May 4.
