    My friend just lost about $30K in equipment stolen over the weekend in Stoneham on the melrose/Malden line. back back blowers generators,cotds tools trimmers, chemicals. not sure what else but alot of smaller stuff you can throw on a truck. one good thing is they left his bobcat. this was all taken from in a locked garage.

    Whoa WTF!!!!! Dude, I grew up in Stoneham! We might know eachother.... I am 32 years old and I just moved to Upstate New York a couple years ago... Just recently started my own company up here so I joined this website but I worked for Vineyard Landscaping(Keith Doherty) for years... Also worked for Mike Lentine back in the day and even Chris Dallas waaaaaay back in the day... That is a pretty brazen theft man.... The drug problem is HORRIBLE down there right now and i'm sure it was junkies who took his ****... I mean, can you see another LCO taking that stuff to work with it? Nope

    I see lentine and vineyard all the time in town. MY buddy is so pissed he needs to work but has no stuff all going to be out of pocket till the insurance kicks in if they will even cover the cost of all the stuff stolen.

    That is true.... but it's cool because there are a lot of guys with a lot of knowledge out there.... Take Keith Doherty for example... He went to the Stockbridge School and also worked for Petrillo for a bunch of years.... I wouldn't even know how to start a mower if it wasn't for him.... He pretty much taught me everything I know and he also helped give me the work ethic I have... I am a solo op and when I am out there doggin it I ask myself what Keith would tell me to do... HaHa... And the answer is "Get Moving you little #@$%^!!!!!" I love that stuff though, it's not an easy business and if you can't rough it, best to go sit in a swivel chair.... Here's a funny one for you.... When I first started working for Keith, he caught me standing there with a rake in my hands.... He kicked it out of my hands and said "There! Now you don't have to hold it anymore!" HaHaHa... Man, I miss Stoneham....
