'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.

Two Greensburg men have been charged with drug offenses after an undercover buy on East Pittsburgh Street, city police said.

David Alan Burrows Jr., 23, was charged with conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance, police said.

Richard Paul Bell, 22, who was with Burrows, was charged with conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said they bought 10 stamp bags of heroin from Burrows on Friday afternoon, then found another 80 bags on him in the police station.

Bell had five empty stamp bags on him when officers patted him down, police said.

Burrows, who was jailed in lieu of posting $50,000 straight bond, and Bell face preliminary hearings Nov. 7 before Greensburg District Judge James Albert.
