12-Man Film Crew from BBC Held Captive for Trespassing on Area 51
Security forces at Area 51 in Las Vegas, Nevada were reported to have captured a 12-man BBC film crew who trespassed on America’s top-secret military base. The crew members, including Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell and UFO specialist Darren Perks, were forced to have their faces lie on the ground at gunpoint.
According to military officials, the film crew unlawfully entered the Area 51, which has been alleged to have captured a crashed UFO and held pilot aliens alive. In response, Perks explained that they tried to call the guards to ask for permission. Since they got no response and did not see any corresponding military officer, they entered in the vicinity as part of their concept to tour across Nevada, California and Arizona.
Military officials said that the ground in Area 51 have detectors that are capable of detecting any intruders. They confiscated the team’s film equipment, cameras, I.Ds and wallets to look for credentials. The things were very serious that London had to receive a call from Washington about the incident. A crew member even confessed that a guard told that they could be killed and that their bodies will never be found.
The film crew found relief when the sheriffs from Lincoln Country arrived. They were fined 375 British pounds each and were allowed to go back to their hotel at Alamo, Nevada. They were also facing imprisonment of 6 months but spared by an unknown official from the Washington.
There have been claims and speculations that there is an UFO activity inside the Area 51. Many have been curious why military officials are so strict that anyone who tries to trespass can be imprisoned or perhaps killed. Skeptics believe that there is an existing government conspiracy in an attempt to hide UFO information from the public.
