'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.

A former Bethel Park assistant hockey coach pleaded guilty on Tuesday to drug charges and was given six months of probation, according to the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office.

Port Authority police arrested Kenneth Lehmann, 26, on Jan. 16 in the Sheraden park-and-ride lot off the West Busway. The Bethel Park Blackhawks of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League dismissed him from the team after his arrest. The team is not affiliated with the Bethel Park School District.

Lehmann and his attorney, Pat Thomassey, could not be reached for comment.

As Lehmann's first drug possession offense, sentencing guidelines called for six months' probation, DA spokesman Mike Manko said.
