Resident charged w multiple child crimes

By Jayme Harcrow, Special to TALON

This week, Detectives with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office charged a local resident with multiple counts of sexual abuse and Contributing to the Delinquency of a minor.

Sheriff’s Detectives received information a few months ago regarding the sexual abuse of a child that is no longer living in our community, but endured the abuse when they lived in Kirtland. After thorough investigating, Detectives were able to locate the suspect and question him about the accusations. The suspect, Harold Atencio (1963), confessed to the criminal sexual acts in an interview with Sheriff’s Detectives yesterday afternoon and was immediately booked into the San Juan County Adult Detention Center.

If you believe your children may have had contact with Atencio and could potentially be a victim of sexual abuse please contact Detective Babadi at 505-334-7749.
