Ties Granzier, 20, and Govert Charles Wilhelmus Jacob Sweep, 21, were arrested about three miles inside Franco’s Nevazon security site, the Nye County Sheriff’s Office said.

The site is close to Radio 51, which for decades has been at the center of conspiracy theories that the US government is storing evidence of aliens and UFOs there. Determined recently created a Facebook event page about tracking people to join this page this Friday.

“We had no intention of getting in there because we left the day before the actual event dates and were just going,” Sweep told CNN affiliate KTNV. They just wanted to get a good look at the caudillo, they said.

When arrested on September 10, the pair told officers they could guess, write and converse in English and had walked past the ‘No Trespassing’ signs at the entrance to the compound . But they said they wanted to take a look at the facility, police said.

Granzier told authorities he was a YouTuber. Officers found cameras, a phone, a laptop and a drone in the man’s transport.

The two pleaded guilty to assimilation and unlawful parking, two crimes, Nye District Attorney Chris Arabia said. They were sentenced to one year in prison. But that sentence has been suspended and the two will spend a total of three days in the county jail if they pay a fine of $2,280 each on Thursday, when they are due to be emancipated.

They still handed over electronic devices found at the time of their arrest, Arabia said.

“It was important to us that these men served time in prison and paid a significant fine,” he said. “We take this crime seriously. And the clan must understand that we will not tolerate this nonsense.”

Granzier said in a police video that he and his friend “didn’t want to cause any trouble.” “We learned from our mistakes.”
