'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.

McKees Rocks police have issued arrest warrants for two men for drug-related charges and are seeking their whereabouts.

David Johnson, 27, is charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Omari Thompson, 25, is charged with possession with intent to deliver controlled substances. Both are from McKees Rocks, and police said they believe the men are working together.

Police said they found nearly 8,000 individually packaged bags of heroin, nearly $18,000 in cash, drug packaging materials, and a money counting machine at 840 Island Ave. on Jan. 20 and issued the charges for Johnson.

The charges for Thompson stem from a Dec. 17 incident where a state parole agent found 4,500 individually packaged bags of heroin, a .357 revolver and cash in Thompson's residence.
