A man who operates a website focused on Area 51 recently had both of his homes searched by government agents, who confiscated many of his personal belongings and caused thousand of dollars in damage.
According to an article by The Associated Press which has been posted on Fox5Vegas.com, Jeorg Arnu, who founded and operates the DreamlandResort.com website, said that military and federal agents raided his home in Las Vegas, and his home in the desert town of Rachel, Nevada on November 3.
The article also quotes Arnu as saying that these “agents confiscated ‘laptops, phones, backup drives, camera gear, and my drone.'”
The searches were recently reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which described his website as “a collection of YouTube videos taken from drones flown around Area 51, satellite images of the base, a discussion forum, and articles about UFOs, test flights and mysterious “black projects.””
The Associated Press article also states that Arnu alleges that he was given an incomplete search warrant by government agents. He also says that records about his case have been sealed so he cannot find out why his residences were searched.
Per the article on Fox5Vegas.com, “Lt. Col. Bryon McGarry, public affairs chief at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, said he was aware that Arnu’s properties had been searched by FBI and Air Force Office of Special Investigations agents. McGarry said he could provide no additional information.” Officials with the FBI and the Air Force OSI either declined to comment about the searches, or did not respond to emails from The Associated Press.
Jeorg Arnu defended himself, and his website, in an email sent to The Associated Press, by stating that he and the members of his website are not spies, that they support the U.S. Military, and they “understand the need for secrecy to keep our country safe.”
