Florida man charged with driving to Space Force base in stolen truck to warn of aliens

A Florida man has been arrested after being charged with stealing a van and driving to a Space Force base to warn the government about alien and mythical creatures.

Corey Johnson, 29, was arrested Friday at Patrick Space Force Base by local deputies after he “attempted to climb onto the base,” according to an arrest citation.

Johnson allegedly told authorities “that the president told him to warn ‘the government that there were American aliens fighting with Chinese dragons.’

Johnson reportedly took control of a Ford F-150 several days before arriving at Patrick Space Force Base and he did not know who owned it, according to local authorities. He was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle.

He told authorities that the president also ordered him to take the truck.

Patrick Space Force Base is home to Space Launch Delta 45, the unit responsible for launching US satellites into orbit on the East Coast. The unit also oversees the nearby Cape Canaveral Space Force Base.

Patrick has a long history with the Ministry of Defence, having first been used as a Naval Air Station during World War II. It was later transferred to the Air Force, renamed Patrick Air Force Base in 1950, and used as the service’s missile test center.

After the official Space Force designation in 2019, the facility was renamed Patrick Space Force Base.

The off-base incident comes two months after a man was killed outside Space Force Station New Boston on May 13.

Michael Foley, 33 – a civilian unrelated to the Space Force – was shot and killed on Galaxy Way, an access road that leads to the remote station in New Hampshire. A local policeman and a “contract security guard” were involved in the incident.

New Boston Space Force Station is leading a Use of Force Review Board to look into the shooting and investigate what happened with the contractor, Peterson-Schriever Garrison spokesman Stephen Brady of Space Force, which oversees Space Force Station New Boston, told Army .com following the incident.
