'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.

State police at Uniontown along with the FBI are investigating a bank robbery that occurred at the First National Bank, Indian Head Road, Saltlick Township, at approximately 10:07 a.m. Thursday.

A white man entered the bank wearing a gray hoodie and mask and was armed with a black, smaller model handgun, according to police. The man demanded money from the tellers indicating he was armed and had a bomb.

An undisclosed amount of money was given to the man who then fled the building and entered a mid- to late-'90s model white four-door Chevrolet Blazer.

The Blazer was seen on Route 711 just south of Normalville minutes after the robbery.

Video obtained from the bank is currently being enhanced in an effort to get a better description.

Anyone with information on the robber or the vehicle involved in the incident is asked to contact Fayette County Crime Stoppers at 1-888-404-TIPS or crimestoppersfayette@gmail.com.

Any information leading to an arrest in this case could result in a reward of up to $1,000.
