'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.

Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man they believe stole more than $600 in child support money that was mistakenly left at the metal detector at the entrance to the Allegheny County Courthouse.

About 90 minutes after a person left the envelope containing the money at the metal detector on Friday, a man approached the deputy and asked for it, Sheriff's Lt. Jack Kearney said. Several hours later, the real owner attempted to reclaim the envelope, Kearney said.

The man who took the envelope is described as white, in his 30s, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 180 pounds with brown hair and slight facial hair. He may have been at the courthouse for a criminal court matter.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call the sheriff's office at 412-350-4714.
