'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 New York man is wanted on charges of stealing at least $40,000 and perhaps as much as $500,000 by impersonating customers from Allegheny County at PNC Bank offices in the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia areas as well as New Jersey.

James Jones, 33, of the Bronx, is charged with a variety of crimes including theft by deception and identity theft, according to a spokesman for Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.

Jones is accused of having the account number of each customer, a Pennsylvania driver's license of each customer with his photo in place of the customer's, and a second form of identification such as a debit card or credit card with the customer's name, according to a criminal complaint.

Anyone with information about Jones is asked to call Zappala's office at 412-388-5300.
