'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.

Police said they developed leads that enabled them to identify a man who inappropriately touched a 14-year-old three times on March 7 in the electronics section of the Wal-Mart on North Center Avenue in Somerset.

State police at Somerset said they are continuing to investigate.

The suspect was described as a clean-shaven white man in his 40s, about 6 feet tall with a “chubby” build and little to no hair. He wore glasses with thick lenses and a camouflage hat, police said.

The suspect may have a speech impediment and a disability involving his right hand, police said.
