'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.

Officers from two police forces are investigating two convenience store robberies late Monday that occurred within 20 minutes of each other on Route 40.

According to Centerville police, Sweet Pea's Food Mart in Redstone Township was robbed around 11:30 p.m. About 20 minutes later, a GetGo convenience store in Richeyville, Washington County, was robbed.

Centerville police said the suspect wielded a tire iron in both robberies. He was described as a white man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with red marks on his forehead that may have been scratches or scabs. He wore red shorts, a black hooded sweatshirt and a white bandana, police said,

No injuries were reported.

The man made off with a small amount of money in the Richeyville robbery, police said. The suspect may have fled in a silver minivan.

Redstone Township Police could not be reached for comment.
