'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 preliminary hearing for a Pittsburgh man accused of persuading a disabled teen to give him $200 from her bank account for drugs was postponed Thursday.

Mt. Lebanon Police said that on March 17, Jeremy John Klein, 19, met a 16-year-old girl with a developmental disability at South Hills Village mall.

Police said he drove the girl around and took advantage of her condition before dropping her off at her home in Mt. Lebanon. Police Lt. Aaron Lauth said officers did not find any drugs in the girl's possession.

Klein was charged with corruption of minors March 18. Court staff said a new hearing date had not been posted.
