'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 state police investigation into drug activity in southern Somerset County has led to the arrest of two men accused of selling methamphetamine and other drugs from a garage in Addison Township, police said.

Justin Devoe, 34, of Meyersdale, and Michael R. McNabb, 36, of Berlin in Somerset County, were arrested Saturday on multiple drug charges when state police stopped McNabb's vehicle as he was in the process of allegedly delivering drugs to Devoe.

Police said a search of the garage on Mt. Davis Road uncovered about 4 grams of methamphetamine, about 56 grams of marijuana, 27 marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia, two guns and cash.

Also confiscated, according to police, was 14 ounce of suspected methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia allegedly found during a search of the vehicle McNabb was operating, police said.

Devoe was charged with four counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver drugs, while McNabb was charged with one count of the same offense. Both were charged with conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. McNabb also was charged with possession of marijuana.

Both men were placed in Somerset County Jail, each in lieu of $75,000 bond, after arraignments before Somerset District Judge Kenneth W. Johnson. They are scheduled for preliminary hearings on July 10 before Meyersdale District Judge Douglas Bell.
