'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 Rural Valley man was charged Wednesday with selling heroin to a law enforcement informant.

Charles E. Blystone, 43, of Schlemmer Road was jailed when he allegedly sold an undisclosed amount of heroin to the informant from his home. He is being held in Armstrong County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.

Blystone is charged with two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or delivery, a felony charge of criminal use of a cellphone and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance.

He has a preliminary hearing in District Judge Samuel Goldstrohm's Rural Valley courtroom on Tuesday.
