Criminals around Europe know no rest and new names are constantly entering the most wanted list. The perpetrators are numerous and they come out of nowhere, a situation that led to five new arrests this week.

To no one’s surprise those arrests proved not meaningful at all, as all five of the alleged criminals were released. No clues to the location of the missing EuroLeague trophy were found, but keep those names in mind. This is not the last time that you may encounter them.

Keith Langford: His reputation as a ruthless killer is long documented in cities like Tel Aviv and Milan. The last few years he is a resident of Kazan, Russia, keeping a low profile out of the spotlight. That changed last week. He challenged Fenerbahce in Istanbul and prevailed in the end as Unics Kazan got its first win. He was a stone-cold assassin with 28 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Currently he tops the most wanted list in Istanbul.

Darius Miller: He was twice arrested last year, but he somehow manages to stay off law enforcement’s main radar. It’s a cross-checked fact that his base is Bamberg and nobody can sleep peacefully there knowing that he’s on the loose. He proved it in Brose Bamberg‘s overtime win against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan with 27 points on 6-for-11 three-point shooting. He is quick in his actions and shows no mercy.

Andrien Moerman: He seems like a bouncer, but he is really a shooter who can do much more. With 16 points, this French criminal added 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 5 steals and 1 block without making even one mistake – or, if you prefer, turnover – as his employer, Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul, managed to get away from Zalgiris Kaunas with all of that night’s loot.

Τyler Honeycutt: He was also arrested last year, but this was probably only the first step in the advancement of his criminal career. He left Moscow for Anadolu Efes Istanbul and there’s nothing that he can’t do for his bosses. In the double-overtime win over Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens, he was all over the place with 15 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 1 block. His talents are endless and so are his crimes.

Shane Larkin: There’s a new cat burglar in Baskonia Victoria Gasteiz and he is as fast as they come. Blink and you will miss him, as Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade did. He had 16 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals and – fortunately for the authorities – also 4 turnovers. That was the thing that gave him away, but as the rest of the suspects who were not prosecuted, he is out again and police fear that he can do much worse in the future.
