Port Clinton police are hunting for answers after a local woman discovered child pornography in a jumbled box of books purchased at a resale shop.

The 51-year-old woman went to an auction shop in Perry Plaza on Jan. 16, where she placed a bid on a box of books in hopes of finding material suitable for her grandchild, according to a Port Clinton police report.

When she later inspected the books, she found a cardboard cover to an adult pornographic DVD. Glued to the inside of the cardboard cover were about a dozen pornographic images, some of children, Port Clinton police Detective Corbin Carpenter said.

“She just found it inside a book while she was leafing through it,” Carpenter said. “She was pretty upset.”

The photos appear decades old, he said, and the seller had no idea the material was in the box.

i admit, imagining the post of another commenter spoken in the voice of a certain family guy charactor may be in poor taste, but a personal attack?

The guy that sold it to her should be arrested for pandering an obscenity!

there's also lots of tattletales that can't wait to stir up crap and get someone thrown in jail or canned from their jobs or whatever. throw the porn in the trash and get on with life. please.

If it was ADULT porn I would agree with you. This is CHILD porn. I doubt the children were WILLING participents. That makes it illegal. If it is old I doubt much can or will be done.

What surprises me, in todays society, is that the 51 year old woman didn't get busted for posession of child pornography.
