Ketankumar and Piyushkumar Patel were arraigned this week in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on charges of receiving stolen beer, news channel WFMJ reported.

The Patels operated the Schenley Carry Out and Lucky Food Drive Thru on Mahoning Avenue on Youngstown's West Side, prosecutors told the court.

They were accused of buying and selling beer, which was allegedly stolen by 37-year-old Ronald Pezzuolo of Youngstown from R L Lipton Distributors where Pezzuolo worked last year.

According to the prosecutors, the operators of R L Lipton noticed the missing product and contacted police.

Assistant Prosecutor Mike Yacovone said the value of the stolen beer to be approximately $20,000.
