'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.

Ashley Remaley, 30, of Kittanning waived her preliminary hearing on drug charges in District Judge James Owens's court on Wednesday for allegedly selling heroin to Armstrong County Narcotics Enforcement Team informants in March.

Remaley is charged with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, two felony counts of criminal use of a cellular phone, two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and two misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Justin W. Smith, 30, of Reesdale Road, Adrian, waived his preliminary hearing on a felony count of criminal conspiracy for delivering a controlled substance. He is accused of accompanying Remaley during one of the two alleged drug sales.

Remaley and Smith remain in the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of $50,000 and $10,000 bonds, respectively.
