A "cannibal cop" named Gilberto Valle was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly planned to kidnap and eat up to 100 women, according to the New York Times.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation found emails and instant messages in which the New York City police officer was "discussing plans to kidnap, rape, torture, kill, cook and eat body parts of a number of women."

"I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus . . . cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible," he allegedly wrote, according to ABC News. "I love that she is asleep right now not have the slightest clue of what we have planned. Her days are numbered ... She does look tasty, doesn't she?"

The Times reports that there were two separate instances in which Officer Valle discussed kidnapping a woman with a co-conspirator. In February, he offered to take a woman for $5,000.

"Just so that you know, she may be knocked out when I get her to you," Valle allegedly wrote, according to the complaint. "I don't know how long the solvent I am using will last but I have to knock her out to get her out of her apartment safely."

"She will be alive," he allegedly continued. "It's a short drive to you. I think I would rather not get involved in the rape. You paid for her. She is all yours and I don't want to be tempted the next time I abduct a girl."

Investigators also found an apparent blueprint Valle created for "abducting and cooking" a second woman. Her name has also not been released.

The FBI later found files in Valle's desk about 100 different women. The Bureau interviewed 10 of these females, each of whom said they knew Valle.

Valle was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping. He will be in Federal District Court on Thursday.

"The allegations in the complaint really need no description from us," said FBI Acting Assistant Director Mary E. Galligan. "They speak for themselves. It would be an understatement merely to say Valle's own words and actions were shocking."

New York Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly called the case "bizarre," according to the Daily Mail.

"We suspended the officer immediately upon his arrest, and a review is now underway to determine whether there was anything in his background that should have alerted the department to his alleged proclivities," he said in a statement.
