'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.

Cranberry police said a Beaver County man stole two gift cards and money left curbside as Christmas presents for trash haulers.

Leslie Lechman, 42, of Rochester, took $10 gift cards and $10 in cash from the trash cans of two homes along Cherrington Drive and Sunset Circle on Dec. 20. Police said Lechman used the gift cards to buy doughnuts and coffee from a nearby Dunkin' Donuts.

Lechman faces theft and receiving stolen property charges. Police said the envelopes were clearly marked for trash haulers.
