'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 Kittanning woman and a Mc-Kees Rocks man were arrested by the Armstrong County Narcotics Enforcement Team and charged with selling heroin to a police informant in a Manor Township home.

Nichole Claypoole, 23, and Rashaan Ahmend Campbell, 33, are being held in the Armstrong County Jail on felony and misdemeanor drug charges, according to District Attorney Scott Andreassi.

Bail was set by District Judge Gary DeComo at $50,000 each.

They are charged with selling 50 stamp bags of heroin to a police informant at a house on Garrets Run Road. Claypoole and Campbell each face two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, and using a cellphone during the drug transaction. They are also charged with possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. In addition, Campbell faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Andreassi said he expects the pair to be charged with endangering the welfare of two young children who were in the house at the time of the alleged drug sale.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Judge DeComo's court.
