'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.

Two men will stand trial for allegedly robbing and stealing wings from a pizza delivery driver in Donora.

Tyler Hall, 18, of 418 Weis Ave., Donora, and Dorian Ellis, 18, of Monessen, were ordered held for court on felony charges of conspiracy and robbery-take property from others with force, and misdemeanor charges of terroristic threats, loitering/prowling at night, theft by unlawful taking, and possessing instruments of a crime.

Felony charges of conspiracy and robbery – inflicting serious bodily injury were withdrawn against both men.

They appeared Wednesday in Washington County Central Court for preliminary hearings.

Hall and Ellis are accused of robbing Hal Perry, a driver for Italian Village Pizza in Monongahela, shortly before 10 p.m. Nov. 13 on Short Street.

Perry told Donora police three black men wearing hooded sweatshirts confronted him and attempted to steal money.

An unnamed, 16-year-old Donora male, is also a suspect.

Perry told police he didn't know his assailants had a gun until he displayed his own firearm.

At that point, the suspects allegedly took off with wings valued at $17.94 and tossed away a pellet gun, police said.

Donora police searched the area of Thompson Avenue and Sixth Street and saw the suspects matching Perry's description eating the wings.

Hall and Ellis remain in the Washington County Correctional Facility, each in lieu of $25,000 straight cash bond.

Perry identified Hall and Ellis as the alleged robbers after police drove them back to Short Street.

Police said that while driving the suspects to the police station, he saw the wings the juvenile suspect allegedly tossed on the curb at the intersection of Thompson Avenue and Sixth Street.
