'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

In the words of Roseanne Roseannadanna of "Saturday Night Live" fame— "Never mind."

After seeing media reports about a car being stolen through a repossession scheme in Indiana County, two men came forward and said they repossessed the wrong car Wednesday, state police at Indiana said.

The men were to repossess a 2000 Ford Focus with the same three first digits of the registration plate as the 2005 Ford Focus eventually taken and owned by Diane Howard, 56, of White.

The last four digits of the 2000 car were close to Howard's, police added.

The repossession men failed to check the vehicle identification number to confirm they had the right car, police said.
