Court orders Airport XXXpress to close

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A judge signed an order Wednesday saying Airport XXXpress must shut down, according to Horry Solicitor Jimmy Richardson. Richardson says Airport XXXpress should stop operating by the end of this week.

WMBF News conducted an investigation in May.

News crews went undercover to the adult-themed video store a handful of times.

The undercover visits exposed the illegal activity found inside the doors of Airport XXXpress Video.

One month after the investigation, a special prosecutor for Richardson filed a civil petition asking the court to declare Airport XXXpress Video a nuisance and allow local officials to shut it down.

Richardson told WMBF News our investigation, in which our photographer observed sex acts, played a critical role in his efforts to close the business.
