Identical twins Keyontyli and Teleon Goffney
A pair of twin cat burglars have been arrested in connection with a rooftop break-in of a South Philadelphia business. Their side-line: starring in gay porn videos.
Identical twins Keyontyli and Taleon Goffney, 25, were placed under arrest Feb. 19, Philly.com reported in a Feb. 25 story.
The twins were charged in connection with a rooftop robbery committed against Moon’s Beauty Shop, as well as neighboring business Wings and More.
Reportedly, the twins are alleged to have used an axe and a saw to cut through the roof and gain entrance into the businesses.
Similar break-ins were reported at other area businesses, including a Rite Aid.
A Feb. 8 break-in at a Wawas in Nether Providence that was allegedly committed by Teleon Goffney resulted in the theft of cash, condoms, and cigarettes, according to police.
The twins hail from New Jersey, where a number of similar break-ins took place over a period of a year and a half, Philly.com reported.
In all, about 40 such burglaries reportedly were committed. The twins are suspects in a multi-state investigation.
But their alleged work as thieves is not the twins’ only talent. They also star, sometimes together, in gay porn, reportedly under the screen names Keyon and Teyon.
One title in the Goffney brothers star together is Marc and the Twins, an online-only video, reported Philly.com.
In the movie, the twins audition for an African-American adult film star in the setting of a cheap hotel.
The Goffneys are joined in Marc and the Twins by adult film star Marc Williams.
Philly.com quoted Erik Schut, of TLA Entertainment, a Philadelphia company that tops national sales in adult films. Said Schut of the Goffneys, "Two incredibly beautiful black men and twins--it’s unprecedented."
Schut said that "Ethnic, gay models are rare," and offered the opinion that, as gay porn stars, the brothers "could have been huge."
Keyontyli has had work as a professional model before, in the more mainstream sense of the word. Philly.com said that Keyontyli had gradated from the Barbizon School of Modeling before landing jobs as a runway fashion model.
Keyontyli is also featured in the magazine CLIK this month. The publication, aimed at a black GLBT readership, includes a seven-page item in which Keyontyli serves as the model.
Keyontyli also has notched up a few walk-on parts in TV shows, such as Save the Music on VH1 and NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
Twin brother Taleon, reportedly called "a bad, bad dude" by an unnamed source with the police, was previously placed under arrest in New Jersey in 2006.
Philly.com reported that police spotted Taleon engaged in acrobatic displays at an apartment complex. After that, Taleon reportedly began dealing drugs, and officers arrested him for possession of crack and a firearm.
However, Taleon gave officers the slip by smashing out a window with a head-butt and then exiting their vehicle, still shackled with handcuffs, He then dove into a pond, said Clementon, N.J. Chief of Police Dave Kunkel
Said Kunkel, "He swam across like Flipper, taunting the officers saying, ’You’ll never catch me.’"
Taleon escaped police pursuit, but turned himself in after a week.
Kunkel said that at that time, Taleon was also in trouble elsewhere in the state, as well as in Delaware, Philly.com reported.
Taleon, Philly.com reported, remains in jail on a bond of $150,000; online records also suggested that Keontyli might have been released upon posting a bail of $75,000.
Both twins are expected to appear in court tomorrow.
