'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 women who police say walked off with five children during an Allegheny County Children, Youth and Family custody hearing on Friday were charged with kidnapping, interfering with custody of children and criminal conspiracy.

Errainna Crosby, 33, of Stowe took five juveniles from the family court building on Ross Street about 6 p.m. Friday, police said. Court officials were conducting a hearing to terminate parental custody of the children.

Surveillance footage showed Crosby and Marianne Robinson, 46, of Spring Hill leaving the area with two children, police said. Three children left with Sonja Guyy, 53, of McKees Rocks, police wrote.

Police pulled over a Port Authority bus on Helen Street in McKees Rocks and found Guyy.

Police learned that Crosby was staying in a home in Sheraden and planned to take the children out of town by bus, police wrote. Police and deputies found Crosby and four of the children in the home about 1 a.m. Saturday, according to the complaint.

Police arrested Robinson in her apartment. The fifth child was in a neighboring apartment, police said. Robinson had asked the residents if the child could spend the night.

The children have been placed in the custody of CYF.

Robinson could not post $5,000 bond, and Crosby could not post $10,000 bond. They remained in jail Saturday afternoon. Guyy was released on her own recognizance.
