'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 Somerset allege that a woman sold an iPad to another woman in Confluence even though she knew that a teenage boy stole it.

The juvenile, whose name was not released, allegedly stole an Apple iPad from a woman's home in Confluence, police said.

Then, Helen Marie Humphrey, 23, of Meyer Street in Confluence, contacted another woman and asked if she was interested in buying the tablet computer for $125, police allege.

The woman paid Humphrey for the iPad, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The iPad was eventually returned to its original owner, police said.

Humphrey is charged with receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking. The teen is charged with conspiracy, receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking, according to a news release.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled before Confluence District Judge Sandra Stevanus.
