'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 seeking a man who robbed the First Commonwealth Bank branch in Export Thursday morning, taking an undetermined amount of cash.

Police said the man entered the bank at 11:16 a.m. carrying a white plastic bag.

Kiski Trooper Owen Leonard said the man displayed no note or weapon. He was not sure if the man spoke to the teller.

The man was described as wearing a dark ski mask, dark-colored hoodie, gray pants and gloves.

The robber left in a car whose driver was waiting for him. Leonard was unsure if the driver was male or female.

The four-door, black Chevrolet Cobalt has a rear spoiler, rain guards on the side windows and a Tom Clark dealer sticker on the driver's side rear bumper.

Anyone with information can contact state police at 724-727-3434.
