the Civil Guard has arrested four of the alleged members of the organization that was stealing the homes of soccer players in Madrid. During the last months, several players of Atlético and Real Madrid (also Zinedine Zidane ), have suffered robberies while they were playing their respective matches, although in some cases there were people inside the homes when the band entered. One of the detainees is of Albanian origin and responds to the initials MZ. He had already been arrested in 2007 for being one of the members of the organization that violently assaulted the house of businessman José Luis Moreno.

Three domiciliary registrations have been made in the Community of Madrid and one in Toledo . In this fourth home, the agents have found the detainees. There have recovered a large number of stolen jewels, 10,000 euros in cash and some valuables, such as the championship runner-up medal of Thomas Partey and his passport.

In the house of the midfielder of Atlético de Madrid in Boadilla del Monte was a housekeeper. Casemiro suffered a robbery of the same characteristics on the day of the Madrid derby. In June, they entered Álvaro Morata’s house with his wife, his children and the caretaker of the children inside the house. In that same month, Lucas Vázquez was also a victim. In addition, Isco and Zidane were robbed during the same day.

All detainees are of Albanian nationality and are accused of crimes of theft of inhabited housing, belonging to a criminal group, reception of stolen material, theft of vehicles and documentary falsification. To perpetrate their crimes, they stole cars that changed their license plates, used transmission equipment and disguised themselves so as not to be recognized by the cameras.

In addition to the four detainees, the Civil Guard believes that a fifth member who could have fled to a country outside the jurisdiction of the European Union is still on the loose , so it has been requested that an international arrest warrant be issued to arrest him .
