HOUSTON — A Texas border community police chief and reputed members of Mexican drug cells operating across the Lone Star State were among 2,200 people arrested as part of a nationwide drug trafficking sweep — 429 of them on Wednesday alone, federal authorities said Thursday.

The arrests culminate a multitude of investigations over the past 22 months in which authorities uncovered schemes that used fake school buses, cloned company vehicles and bogus bales of hay to move drugs north and cash and guns south.

According to the U.S. Justice Department, cities in which arrests were made included Houston, El Paso, Corpus Christi and McAllen.
