Santa Fe police seek the public's help finding a man charged with sex crimes against a child. 

Special Victims Unit investigators filed charges Thursday against David Carrasco, 52, on nine counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13, three counts of criminal sexual contact with a minor and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to a criminal complaint filed in Santa Fe County Magistrate Court. 

The warrant was issued Thursday.

According to a news release, Carrasco, of Santa Fe, is 5-foot-11 and weighs 198 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of a spiderweb on the left side of his neck and a spider on the right side. 

Carrasco was convicted of burglary in 2011, court records show. He was last seen in Albuquerque "recently" while visiting family, the release said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call law enforcement at 505-428-3710 or Detective Jordan White at 505-955-5298.

You are totally right I’ve lived here my whole life and can’t wait to move to Colorado everything from the newspaper, police, hospitals, customer service employees are all questionable. This city has been going down the drain for the past 10 years!

Why on earth doesn't the New Mexican include the mugshot of this person in the story? The police are asking for the publics help in locating David Carrasco. How on earth do you expect us to help if we don't know what he looks like? This grossly lazy journalism. Seriously, if you are not going to do it right, why bother even running the story at all?

Andrew, the reporters/editors don't read our posts. They only monitor for language, personal, attacks, and other inappropriate behavior. I you want answers, go to the source. I've found this out on my own. Phaedrea, who wrote the very informative , lengthier that usual article, many of us on here comment on, the DA, the courts, the cops, responds when I thank her, ask questions, give feedback. Try it. Otherwise, what are you commenting for if it's just going into the echo chamber. I will say Victoria Traxler never responded when I asked her about her article on David Trinidad. Do a site search. The guy is a dangerous scumbag and after looking into it, it looks like good old magistrate let him bond out $5K with an ankle bracelet, after the DA did or didn't make a good argument for not letting him out. I asked Victoria why no pic, or could she confirm he is out. I see folks like you, Abel Ortega, Rich Reinders , Micheal Grimler, Khal Spencer comment on thins like this but if we pressed Phill Casaus, pcasaus@sfnewmexican 505-986-3033/ bbarker@sfnewmexican 505-986-3058/ etc etc etc maybe we can get them to publish photos, not as some vigilante tool but public awareness. I'll tell you, i wish I knew what David Trinidad looked like. I've got elderly family out their shopping and running errands in town. In fact, I'm going to contact SFPD for lunch.
