'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.

WILMINGTON, Del. — Federal prosecutors said Friday that four men arrested in the theft of a $2 million ruby from a Delaware jewelry store are tied to a ring that committed several similar smash-and-grab heists in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

A December indictment unsealed Thursday in Delaware details allegations about the theft ring. A superseding indictment was filed and final arrest made that same day in connection with the Pennsylvania and New Jersey robberies.

Delaware prosecutors said the suspects, none of whom was arrested in Delaware, are all Pennsylvania men with no ties to Delaware but a history of crime, including serving time for armed robbery.

“These are essentially professional armed robbers,” U.S. Attorney Charles Oberly III said.
