An Oklahoma City man was among those arrested in a May sting that netted 190 child predators, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Friday.

The arrests were made during a nationwide, monthlong operation run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations special agents, according to a government statement. “Operation Orion” targeted people who distributed, transported, received, possessed or produced or advertised images or videos of child pornography.

Agents arrested Andrew McKee, 35, of Oklahoma City, on May 9 in Garland, Texas, on complaints he coerced and enticed a minor on the Internet. According to the statement, McKee met a 14-year-old victim on a social network site, texted the victim and offered money in exchange for sex.

Agents worked with local law enforcement to make the arrests and identify and rescue 18 victims.

A 29-year-old man from Tulsa also was arrested in the sting, though details on his case were not immediately available, said Carl Rusnok, an agency spokesman.
