'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 are investigating the alleged theft of $2,100 from a resident at Duff Manor in Export.

The resident reported the cash missing from three envelopes in a dresser drawer after a water main break forced an evacuation of the senior citizen apartments last week.

The resident was displaced overnight and discovered the money was missing after returning a day later.

About 40 to 50 customers' water was shut off near Duff Manor on Kennedy Avenue when a 12-inch cast-iron main broke between 5:30 and 6 a.m. Oct. 10, said Tom Ceraso, assistant manager of the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County. Service was restored at about 3 p.m., he said.

A restoration company worked to remove mud from ground-floor apartments flooded by the water main break.

Eight residents remained displaced on Wednesday. It couldn't be determined whether the resident who reported the theft was still displaced.

The Westmoreland County Housing Authority declined to comment.
