'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 Leechburg Loyal Order of the Moose leader has been charged with endangering the welfare of children and other crimes for allegedly smoking marijuana with high school students during a Moose-sponsored field trip, state police said.

Police charged Frederick Joseph Ulmer III, 31, of Leechburg in connection with the Nov. 20 incident. Ulmer serves as group administrator, youth awareness chairman and community service chairman with the Moose.

Ulmer is accused of permitting one of the students to smoke pot and later joined that youth and several others in smoking the drug, police said.

The incident happened while Ulmer was driving the students back from a scholarship program in Selinsgrove, police said.

Police also charged a second adult on the trip, Heather Ann Bothell, 33, of East Vandergrift with corruption of minors. It was unclear if she smoked marijuana with the group.
