'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.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency will collect potentially dangerous controlled substances at area police departments Friday and this weekend as part of the National Take-Back Initiative.

The collections give residents a change to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for law enforcement to destroy.

Redstone Highlands Senior Living Communities' Murrysville campus will join borough police in a collection from 2-3 p.m. Friday at the campus.

On Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., the following police departments and a drugstore are participating in the program:

• Greensburg police, 416 S. Main St.

• Mt. Pleasant, borough building, 1 Etze Ave.

• North Huntingdon Townhouse, 11279 Center Highway

• Murrysville, community library, 4100 Sardis Road

• Lower Burrell, city hall, 2800 Bethel St.

• Arnold police station, 601 Drey St.
