On Monday, April 25, West Goshen officers responded to J&J landscaping in the 700 block of Old Fernhill Road for a burglary report. The owners told police that upon arriving for work, they determined that unknown actors had entered the business and removed two Exmark zero-turn lawn mowers and several other pieces of lawn-care equipment, the release said.

Police zeroed in on Pinzone and Mahoney on Tuesday, April 26, because they showed up on surveillance footage. In addition, to commit the alleged crimes, they had borrowed a custom trailer that facilitated their identification, according to West Goshen Police Capt. Gregory Stone.

Both admitted their role in the burglary and said that they wanted to open a lawn and landscaping business and did not have the start-up money to purchase equipment, the release said. Pinzone and Mahoney were arraigned before Magisterial District Justice William D. Kraut, who set bail at 10 percent of $5,000.

They were transported to Chester County Prison, where they each posted bail. They were released to await a preliminary hearing on Thursday, May 12, court records said.
