'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.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force arrested five men on Friday, including one who tried to flee as officers broke down the front door and another who was caught following a brief foot chase.

Eugene Spence, 22, who was wanted for drug violations, tried to run out the back door of a home in McKees Rocks while officers breached the front door, said Jon Gallagher, a supervisory deputy marshal. Officers found a brick of heroin.

Bryant Boyd, 22, who was wanted for parole violations, required hospital treatment after he jumped out a third-floor window in the North Side and tried to run, Gallagher said.

Captured elsewhere were Mark Krasha, 29, of Pittsburgh, wanted on robbery and burglary charges; Stephen Watkins, 18, of Homestead, wanted for firearms offenses; and Dmar Muldrow, 27, of Pittsburgh, wanted for assault and drug violations.
