(MEXICO CITY) - A Mexican official says police have detained a member of the Knights Templar cartel who is suspected of kidnapping children to harvest their organs.

Michoacan state Public Safety Secretary Carlos Castellanos Becerra says that Manuel Plancarte Gaspar was part of the cartel's organ trafficking ring.

Castellanos Becerra says the ring would kidnap children and take them to rented homes with medical equipment where their organs were removed. The official didn't give any other details.

He says the 34-year-old suspect is the nephew of Enrique Plancarte Solis, a top Knights Templar leader.
