'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.

A Vandergrift man on Wednesday waived to court charges that he allegedly used a hidden camera to take nude photos of women in a Kiski Township apartment bathroom.

Kiski Township police charged Dale Allen Frederick, 47, of Lincoln Street with invasion of privacy and harassment after a township woman reported finding a camera hidden in a vent above her shower.

Police said Frederick, who owned a garage adjacent to the apartment, told them he had used cameras to photograph women living in the apartment since December 2007.

In addition to the camera, police allege Frederick had about 30 pictures and videos of nude women and other photography equipment.

Neither Frederick and his attorney, Matthew Fair, commented to the media.
