Police arrested 75-year-old JD Sackett after an undercover officer went inside his home, and was charged $10 to watch pornographic videos in a room.

The house is located two doors down from a former daycare, and right next door to a home and vet clinic.

News 9 talked with one neighbor who's glad an arrest was finally made.

The Neighbor told New 9 he would often notice several cars going in and out of the Northwest OKC home at all hours of the day and night.

He says he knew something sinister was going on inside.

"I noticed something wrong because I've been in this area almost 10 years, and at least the 10 years I know something's been wrong," The neighbor said.

This neighbor did not want to be identified, but says he's glad something was finally done to shut down the illegal operation going on inside.

The neighbor said he saw lots of men driving in and out of the house at all hours of the night.

"Really all day! On the weekend! Sometimes up to midnight, up to one o'clock two o'clock," he said.

Turns out Sackett wrote about revealing "the secret" on a sign we could see through the front door. But it was almost as if Sacket did not want the secret to get out.

All of the windows and other doors had been boarded up tight. And the only sign we could find outside his home and business didn't even face the street.

As a result, some visitors would knock on the wrong door by mistake.

"I didn't know what kind of business it was, there was no name, no tag, no sign and they apologized and they left," the neighbor said. "They were asking for the place to please themselves."

This neighbor says he called both the city and police to check the place out. He's just glad something has finally been done.
