A woman in Gaffney, South Carolina, was arrested last week after selling porn tapes she had found on the street door to door.

52-year-old Jeanette Ellis explained to police she needed money and thought that selling the box of tapes she found would be a good way to make that happen.

After previewing some of them to make sure they were not blank tapes, she set forth to make some much needed dough by selling them at five dollars a tape.

But one of her neighbors was offended by her offer and called police, who arrested her for selling without a permit.

Ms. Ellis, who has had run-ins with the law before for drug and prostitution related offenses, was imprisoned and later released.
