'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.

A Sewickley Township man who was jailed on Tuesday after being arrested in Jeannette following an intensive manhunt in South Huntingdon the day before is charged with fleeing from authorities and resisting arrest.

George Charles Hayden III, 21, of 201 Rear Sewickley Ave., Herminie, is accused of running from Westmoreland County Sheriff's Deputy Christopher Tretter when Tretter attempted to serve him with a bench warrant on Monday.

Tretter said he first spotted Hayden and his girlfriend in a vehicle traveling along Bells Mills Road in South Huntingdon. Hayden allegedly sped up to about 65 mph and drove onto Turkeytown Road for about three-quarters of a mile before turning into a residential driveway, the affidavit stated.

When Hayden pulled into a driveway at 442 Turkeytown Road, he got out of his vehicle and fled from Tretter, running a half-mile through woods and fields, before Tretter lost sight of him, according to the affidavit.

Hayden was arrested Tuesday morning along Harrison Avenue in Jeannette, when sheriff's deputies spotted him riding in a car near the CoGo's convenience store.

In a criminal complaint filed with West Newton District Judge Charles Christner, Hayden was charged with fleeing from a police officer, recklessly endangering another person, disorderly conduct and traffic offenses.

Hayden is lodged in the county jail, and a preliminary hearing has not been scheduled.

The sheriff's department charged Hayden with resisting arrest in Jeannette and distributing a small amount of marijuana.

He has a Nov. 7 preliminary hearing before Jeannette District Charles DeMarchis on those charges.
