MORE BIZARRE HISTORY BEHIND DULCE, NEW MEXICO
Hoyt Velarde named in a complaint filed by former Dulce Police Patrol Sargeant:
Hoyt Velarde was a former 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.
Hoyt Velarde, as well as the Jicarilla Apache Police Department, as well as the Jicarilla Apache Nation were named in a complaint filed in 2003 by a former Jicarilla Apache Dulce Police officer, Phillip Gallegos.
Gallegos himself was not a member of the Jicarilla Apache tribe but worked for the tribe as a Police Patrol Sargeant. 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 Gallegos from his position as a police officer after learning of this report.
The exact nature of Gallegos' accusation is not clear in this court hearing.
Apparently the U.S. Government sided with the Jicarilla Apache Nation and overturned Gallegos' complaint:
02-2347 -- Gallegos versus Jicarilla Apache Nation -- 11/28/2003

Also, although the following item may not have much to do with this, but, nevertheless, here is an interesting news item of 1998 from the ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL:

I would appreciate if anyone could fill me in on this incident.
