CHIMAYO, N.M. — Police have arrested a man after they say he injected his young son with heroin on several occasions.

This all started after the sister of 9-year-old Luke Velasquez’s told her mother that the marks on the boy’s neck came from their father injecting him with heroin. The mother took the boy to the hospital where he tested positive for THC and opiates.

Initially the boy told police that a 15-year-old friend is the one who injected him with heroin, but would later admit that it was his father, Jose Valasquez, who had injected him with the drug at least 10 times. He also told them that his dad let him drink and smoke marijuana.

The sister confirmed her father’s actions and added that her father had offered drugs and alcohol to her as well, but aside from taking drink on one occasion, declined his offers explaining to him that she didn’t need drugs because she had God. Ugh. I once had someone say the same crap to me when I offered her some Boone’s Farm. “What the hell do you know about God,” I asked before I tightened the straps. “You’re fourteen.”

Family and friends of Valasquez say this is all a load of crap. They claim Valasquez is a good dad and these are merely accusations coming from a woman who lost custody of her two children to Jose and is just trying to get them back with lies.

“I know (he) and his ex-girlfriend have had many, many issues through the years. There is some bad blood there. (These are) probably just accusations,” Jose’s cousin said.

But the fact remains that THC and opiates were found in this boy’s blood and the boy and his sister have ratted their father out. Velasquez is looking at felony counts of child abuse and contributing to a delinquency of a minor — and a possible four year prison stint.

The mother is fighting for full custody of Luke and his sister.
