More bizarre history behind Dulce, New Mexico:

HOYT VELARDE NAMED IN A COMPLAINT BY FORMER DULCE POLICE PATROL SARGEANT
by Norio Hayakawa      April 9, 2007

Some of you may know who Hoyt Velarde is.   Some may not.

Hoy Velarde was the Police Chief of Dulce, New Mexico, a Jicarilla Apache town long associated with stories of "UFOs", "black helicopters", "cattle mutilations" along with a secret "underground base/genetics-lab" which has been rumored to exist under the Archuleta Mesa, adjacent to it.

Recently it came to our attention that Hoyt Velarde, as well as the Jicarilla Apache Police Department, as well as the entire Jicarilla Apache Nation were named in a complaint filed in 2003 by a former Jicarilla Apache Dulce Police officer, Mr. Phillip Gallegos.

Mr. Gallegos himself was not a member of the Jicarilla Apache tribe but worked for the tribe as a Police Patrol Sergeant.   He alleged that he had uncovered evidence of possible criminal activity within the Jicarilla Apache Police Dept.

As a "whistleblower", he reported to federal authorities.  The complaint alleged that the Jicarilla Apache tribe was collectively engaged in this illegal conduct.

The tribe then terminated Mr. Gallegos from his position as a police officer after learning of this report.
The exact nature of Mr. Gallegos' accusation is not clear in this court hearing.

Apparently the U.S. government overturned Mr. Gallegos' complaint:

I am very curious as to what his allegations included.
