Interest in the strange arrest of gay porn twins ‘Teyon’ and ‘Keyon’ exploded across the Net this week, even keying the national press into covering the story.

The brothers, 26-year-old Taleon and Keyontyli Goffney, who have appeared in a variety of gay porn videos, were arrested last week in a suspected string of robberies across three states.

The Associated Press, among several other national news organisations, leapt onto the odd tale of the suspected twin gay porn criminals this week.

The story originally broke on the web on several gossip sites, including Perez Hilton, and quickly spread through the gay media world.

Now larger press outlets, such as the AP and the Philadelphia Daily News have latched onto the highly provocative story.

Twin brothers, 26-year-old Taleon and Keyontyli Goffney, were arrested last week after robbing a Rite Aid pharmacy in Philadelphia.

The brothers, whom Perez Hilton, among other bloggers, outed on his site as gay porn actors, are suspected in a spree of at least 35 to 40 other robberies over three states.

The twins have appeared in videos on sites such as Blackmen.net and EbonyD.com under the names ‘Teyon’ and ‘Keyon’.

In the latest robbery, the pair reportedly cut a hole in the roof of the store and climbed down into the building using a rope.

This pattern of break-in is similar to a string of other robberies across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, according to NBC10.com.

Police authorities believe the two men may be responsible for as many as 35 to 40 break-ins and robberies.

In the latest incident, the brothers vandalised and stole money from an ATM machine inside the Rite Aid store and emptied out the cash register.

Keyontyli was arrested at the scene after an alarm notified police of the break-in. Taleon escaped, but was captured later.

Taleon Goffney pled guilty this week to resisting arrest and criminal mischief from an earlier case as part of a plea agreement, according to the Courier Post.

In a previous arrest on drug-related charges, Taleon made a daring escape from authorities by breaking out the window of a police cruiser and leaping into a lake while still handcuffed.

Police Chief Dave Kunkel told the Daily News that Taleon swam away across the lake yelling “You’ll never catch me.”

Caught he was, however, eventually. Taleon has also pleaded guilty to burglary in two cases in New Jersey, his lawyer told the Inquirer.

He is still being held in a Philadelphia jail, according to the AP. Keyontyli was released after posting bail.

Keyontyli Goffney maintains a modeling web siteand has participated in a national underwear campaign.

Both brothers have reported appeared in a variety of gay porn videos, according to Rod 2.0.

Some of the promotional images from the porn videos appear to show incestuous activities between the two men.
