'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.

Two people were arrested on drug charges following a raid at a home in Washington County.

Members of the Washington County District Attorney's Drug Task Force, along with city and state police, raided the home on Seminole Avenue in Washington and seized 103 stamp bags of heroin, 28 marijuana plants, and nearly $3,000 in cash, District Attorney Eugene A. Vittone said on Friday.

Donald Sadler, 28, and the woman who lives at the home were not immediately charged with those crimes.

However, Vittone said Sadler was arrested on an outstanding warrant issued in November on charges of drug trafficking, court records show. Juan Watson, 25, also of Washington, was at the home when the raid was made and was arrested on an outstanding warrant for drug violations, according to court records.
