'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.

Butler Township police are investigating a burglary and vandalism at Butler Intermediate High School early Monday morning.

Police responding to a 1:23 a.m. fire alarm at the school at 551 Fairground Hill Rd. smelled paint fumes as they began doing a building check, said Detective David Fish.

Several parts of the building were found spray-painted with graffitti and some electronic equipment was stolen, Fish said.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact township police at 724-285-9600.
