'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.

Sewickley police were dispatched to the 700 block of Washington Street for a report of a female juvenile who was chased into her residence by an unknown male Dec. 27.

The girl told police she was outside her home when a man walking down the street said to her, “Hi sweetie, how are you doing?” The girl told police that she then picked up her dog and began to move toward the house when the man began to chase her.

She was able to get inside and tell her mother, who then called the police. The man was gone when police arrived.

Burglary

Sewickley police were dispatched to a residence on the 800 block of Thorn Street on Dec. 21 for a burglary report.

The woman told police she was on vacation and when she came back, $800 was missing from a drawer in her bedroom. She told police $100 in change also had been stolen from her residence recently.

Home invasion

Sewickley police assisted Ambridge with a home invasion where one man was shot at a residence near the border of Ambridge and Leetsdale on Dec. 24.

Ambridge police requested all available units to look for three black males armed with semi-automatic handguns. The suspects were gone when police arrived.

No further information was available.
