California man rents movie from Redbox, gets porn

ISLETON, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California man who rented a children's movie from DVD kiosk operator Redbox got something very different instead.

James Terry, of Rocklin, tells KCRA-TV the "Smurfs 2" DVD turned out to be pornography. He rented the movie from a Redbox machine in Stockton on Tuesday.

Terry says he called Redbox, which offered him 10 movies and a $2 credit and said it was working on a program to prevent people from photocopying bar codes.

In a statement to the station, the company said it was helping local law enforcement try to find the person responsible in Terry's case.

The other movie Terry rented that day, "Man of Steel," did not have any problems.
