Earthly visitor breaks into alien welcome centre; steals TV
BOWMAN, S.C. ——A man trying to attract extraterrestrials to South Carolina says an earthly visitor broke into his alien welcome centre and stole a flatscreen TV.
UFO Welcome Center owner Jody Pendarvis says the intruder breached the 23-yearold ramshackle building shaped like a UFO from a 1950s movie on April 22.
Pendarvis told The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg the thief gained access by tampering with the pulleys on the ramp that lowers to allow visitors to enter. Pendarvis says he built the UFO structure in 1994 to attract extraterrestrials to Bowman, about 95 kilometres south of the capital of Columbia. He says he saw his first alien in 1999.
