'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.

There were no injuries in a bank robbery Wednesday at the Allegheny Valley Bank on Mount Royal Boulevard in Shaler.

Two masked men, both wearing gloves and at least one of them brandishing a weapon, entered through the rear of the bank shortly after 10 a.m. and ordered everyone to the floor, Shaler police said. One of the men then vaulted the teller cage and retrieved cash from the teller drawers, police said.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area at the time is asked to contact Shaler police at 412-492-2222.
