'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 New Florence man was sentenced to a state prison Wednesday for having firearms and methamphetamine manufacturing materials in his car.

Christopher Charles Adams Sr., 29, was sentenced to three to six years by Judge Rita Hathaway. He pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to manufacture, firearms not to be carried without a license, having a prohibited offensive weapon, operating a methamphetamine lab and related charges.

A vehicle Adams was driving in St. Clair was stopped by police on April 3 for speeding when investigators discovered a loaded shotgun, a handgun, meth-manufacturing items and boxes of ammunition, police said.
