'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 man handed a Dairy Queen employee a note indicating he was “desperate” when he robbed the store on Friday, police said.

State police at Uniontown said the man entered the ice cream shop on West Main Street at 6:13 p.m., showed an employee a handwritten note that said “Give me all the money. I'm desperate,” and indicated he had a gun.

The employee gave the man an unknown amount of money from the cash register and the man fled in a white, 2009 Chevrolet Impala that had been reported stolen earlier in the day.

The robber is a white male, approximately 30 years old with brown hair and some facial hair. He was wearing a black ball cap, long sleeved blue T-shirt, blue denim shorts, white socks, black sneakers and black sunglasses. The car has a Pennsylvania registration — GSD 9849.
