Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Knights Templar

Monday, December 13, 2010 |


The Knights Templar gang (Spanish: Caballeros Templarios) is a Mexican criminal organization and an offshoot of the La Familia Michoacana drug cartel based in the Mexican state of Michoacán.

After the death of Nazario Moreno González, lider of La Familia Michoacana cartel, José de Jesús Méndez Vargas took control of the cartel. However, his authority is disputed by the other cartel co-founders Enrique Plancarte Solís and Servando Gómez Martínez, who formed an offshoot of La Familia calling itself Caballeros Templarios (or Knights Templar).
