The effort involving 21 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies ran from Aug. 20 through Friday.

The agency says those arrested include a man wanted in a homicide in Texas and another wanted for a parole violation for fraud.

Authorities in Tijuana, Mexico, also arrested a man as part of the operation. He is facing 11 counts of sexual assault of a child in Sparks.

Authorities also seized 14 firearms and 4.4 pounds (2 kg) of various drugs.
