Police: Woman sold VHS porn tapes door-to-door

Posted: Updated:

GAFFNEY, SC (WYFF) - An Upstate woman trying to sell pornographic VHS tapes was arrested after police say they got a complaint about her going door to door.

Gaffney police said they received complaints last Tuesday about a woman carrying a bag going from house to house. One homeowner said the woman came to her door, and when she did not answer it, the woman moved on to another house.

An officer found the woman, later identified as 52-year-old Jeanette Adele Ellis, on West Smith Street near West Floyd Baker Blvd., and asked her what she was doing.

The officer said Ellis responded that she was trying to sell some "porn VHS tapes."

The officer said Ellis admitted she did not have a permit from the city for door-to-door sales. Ellis was arrested and charged with not having a permit required to solicit. 

The tapes were seized as evidence.
