Personalities associated with "underground bases"
(from the Internet and other published sources)
Part I, The State of New Mexico
background information from available Internet and other sources:
HOYT VELARDE is a resident of Dulce, New Mexico, town of the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation.
He was a former assistant chief of police of Dulce in June of 1989.
He was also alleged to be a former Federal police officer who flew with many "black helicopter" search and destroy missions looking for illegal
marijuana farms in remote areas of the Jicarilla Apache reservation.
HOYT VELARDE, according to some sources, became known as the "infamous" Hoyt Velarde. Others came to describe him as Hoy "bad news" Velarde.
Even some townspeople have allegedly described him as being "a little strange".
HOYT VELARDE was allegedly accused in 1990 of illegally detaining a U.S. citizen and several foreign reporters while on public land, i.e., on the
street of Dulce. This alleged, "illegal" detainment by a law enforcement officer on a public street was reported several times in the past.
Whether or not his actions violated any civil rights of a citizen has not been clear all this time. This alleged "incident" was never officially
reported to any civil authority and was never challenged by the "detainees". One of several reports on this incident was included briefly in an
article entitled: Dulce, New Mexicorevisited - mysteries still remain !!
HOYT VELARDE was also known to have been well informed about the "underground base" in Dulce, New Mexico from the late 70's.
He had performed considerable research and ground searches on his own for any evidence that would point to an "underground facility" in the Dulce
area. He was said to have been very alert for any sighting reports or unusual activity.
HOYT VELARDE apparently had all types of people show up in Dulce who demanded to be taken to the "door" leading to the "underground base".
For most part, these people were not experienced hikers/backpackers. They were not at all prepared with the gear needed to be poking around that
HOYT VELARDE reportedly said he was very concerned that many of them would either get lost or injured in some remote place and then have to be air
evacuated out to a hospital. Apparently he had so many show up, that they had become a nuisance factor to carrying on normal police functions, let
alone any type of rescue ops.
HOYT VELARDE apparently indicated that the Jicarilla Apache Tribal Council was very aware of the reputation Dulce had acquired as a "UFO
HOYT VELARDE, on a curious note, is also known to be a member of The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO).
