YouTubers Ties Granzier, 20, and Govert Sweep, 21, of the Netherlands were held this Wednesday after purportedly trespassing at Nevada National Security Site.
The Nevada National Security Site, which is a government nuclear facility, is stationed just 10 miles distant from Area 51.
As Area 51 is extraordinarily confidential and its purpose is unexplored, it has led to many intrigues about the facility.
A Facebook event named “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of US” has now made two YouTubers of the Netherlands to the United States, according to the authorities who searched their car, which was seen parked close to the place of their arrest.
The incident that had begun out mainly as a fun, according to its organizers, has anyhow pulled a great deal of attention online and was originally planned to be on September 20.
Granzier and Govert were undoubtedly among the event’s members who wanted to break into Area 51. After speculations and talks of the United States government’s hiding aliens in the intriguingly secret facility, they desired to “see the aliens” for themselves.
The YouTubers dropped a laptop, a camera, and a drone in the car, leading the agents to examine the materials. After seeing out the footage from inside of the facility, the officials took action to charge the mates.
Grazier and Sweep have reportedly said the officials that they can correctly know English but still did not give any notice to “No Trespassing” signs all around the facility.
After being detected in the facility in Nye County, Nevada, the YouTubers were, then, caught by the police officials following the declaration by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office.
The US Department of Justice shows to the point that trespassing at a military base is a serious crime and can be punished with a 6-month jail, a $500 penalty, or both in some cases.
