FBI Agents Break into the Home of the UFO Researcher and Website Owner Dreamland Resort: Area 51

A series of tweets by George Knapp of Las Vegas-based KLAS-TV revealed that FBI agents broke into the home of the owner of a popular UFO site and Area 51.

Knapp tweeted Thursday night that Joerg Arnu, owner of Dreamland Resort: Area 51, was raided by the FBI at his home in Rachel, Nevada.

“FBI agents went after the operator of a popular website dedicated to all things Area 51 – its programs, traditions and legacy. More than a dozen officers have issued a warrant for the arrest of Joerg Arnu, owner of http://dreamlandresort.com , in Rachel, Nevada…”

Knapp said in a second tweet that all “computers, files, phones, photos” were “seized” as another team of FBI agents raided his other home in Las Vegas. The officers “seized all digital devices and files, held his girlfriend at gunpoint.”


“The warrants were issued a week ago. Arnu stated on his website that he did not know the reason for the break-in or whether specific images of the secret base posted online could have triggered such vigorous action by the federal police,” Knapp continued.

On the Dreamland Resort: Area 51 website, the first sentence reads:

Monitoring Area 51 since 1999: Take a look at Area 51, also known as Dreamland, the most famous secret airbase in the world.

The mystery remains as to why a “no-knock” warrant was issued at Knapp’s home with armed FBI agents.

It should be noted that this police raid comes several weeks before the United States Air Force unveils its new B-21 Raider stealth bomber on December 2nd.

Here’s what people are saying in response to Knapp’s report:

Look, the FBI is going to find child pornography on his computer. It seems like it happens every time they want to get rid of a problem. Strange that this always happens to people they don’t like.

He must have filmed something classified.
