Velasquez lost his job at a construction company in January. He then allegedly began stalking and threatening people with whom he used to work. The company contacted law enforcement to report the activity.
They told officers Velasquez was sending photos of himself with guns and profanity-laden messages to ex-coworkers. He also revealed he knew details about their homes and routines. He had reportedly begun cyberstalking some people, and authorities believe he may have been watching some of the victims in order to learn the personal details he revealed.
The San Jose Police Department obtained a warrant that allowed them to take all firearms in Velasquez’s possession. They explained some of the guns they confiscated were illegal. He will go to court on June 6 to determine his fitness to retain the legal firearms.
