'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 Hempfield woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of misappropriation of postal funds while employed at the post office in Latrobe.

Jessica L. Croyle, 32, took cash and money orders totaling $55,362.90 for her own use, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney David Hickton.

The alleged thefts took place between Nov. 1, 2012, and July 19, 2013.

Croyle is free on $25,000 bond, the release said.

She is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 22 when she faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 or both, according to the release.
