Jeanette Ellis Arrested For Allegedly Selling VHS Pornography Tapes Door-To-Door

Ding-dong!

Police arrested a woman from Gaffney, S.C., after they caught her going door-to-door selling porn -- on VHS.

Jeanette Ellis, 52, told FOX Carolina that she was just trying to make a quick buck by selling pornography tapes she found in a box down the street.

"I watched some of them," she told the station, but ultimately decided there was money to be made.

"I was going to get like $5 for them," she said.

One neighbor who refused to come to the door when Ellis knocked called authorities. In a report, police say they found the 52-year-old with 12 VHS tapes, according to the Smoking Gun.

Ellis was charged with not having a permit, according to WWYF. The tapes were seized for evidence.
