'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.

Three men were arrested and guns and drugs seized on Friday when Allegheny County Sheriff's deputies and federal and local authorities went to a home in West Mifflin.

The men were identified as: Noelle Catlin, 27, of West Mifflin; Howard Morrison, 21, of Duquesne, and Dorian Wood, 24, of McKees Rocks. All were charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs and receiving stolen property, sheriff's Lt. Jack Kearney said.

Firearms charges also were filed against Morrison, who was wanted on charges of indecent assault, burglary and a probation violation, and Wood, who was wanted for a parole violation, Kearney said.

Deputies recovered a loaded handgun and two shotguns, one of which was reported stolen, he said. Narcotics, including 95 individual baggies of crack cocaine and 17 stamp bags of heroin, also were seized.

The FBI Safe Streets Task Force and officers from Pittsburgh, Duquesne, McKeesport, and West Mifflin participated in the arrests.
