'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 14-year-old boy faces charges in juvenile court after police said he tried to take a large hunting knife into Uniontown Area High School.

Officer Mike Garrow of Uniontown Police said the freshman had the knife in a backpack when he tried to enter the high school Thursday morning. Garrow said the boy was acting suspiciously and was reluctant to pass through a metal detector. The boy tried to leave, but Garrow said he stopped him and discovered the knife.

Garrow said the teen has been placed on suspension. He is to be charged through juvenile court with possession of instruments of crime and disorderly conduct.
