More faces have been added to the list of the county’s most wanted criminals – and some have been on the run for 13 years.

A police spokesman said: “These cases date back to 1999 and 2001, however the cases have not been closed and we are continuing to investigate.

“We would urge members of the public with information about any of these men to contact us as soon as possible.”

Included on the most wanted list is Carlos Barbosa, of Corby, who was arrested after a 43-year-old man was stabbed in Cransley Gardens, in the town, in August 2001.

He was arrested and charged but failed to appear in court in June 2002.

Wellingborough man Courtney Conrad Anderson was arrested in December 2002 on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs and failed to turn up at court in October 2003.

Police also want to trace Kaspars Grinvalds, 24, of Wellingborough, and Artur Deveniowski, 23, of Corby, who are wanted for fraud and forgery.

Three Northampton men are on the force’s most wanted list.

Bekim Xhaka, 37, failed to appear in court in connection with an offence of assault in 1999, Pandeli Rexhepay, 34, is wanted for an offence of assault in 1999 and Eamon Byrne 39, is wanted for a burglary in 1999. Anxiong Du, 52, believed to be from Coventry, is wanted in connection with the murder of a family of four from Northampton.

Two of the county’s most wanted men have recently appeared in court.

Stephen McNamee, 32 from Corby, was jailed for 22 months for hitting a man over the head with a glass bottle at a Leicester nightclub. He handed himself in to police last month.

Armed robber Martin Reilly, 53, formerly of Thorngate Street, Kettering, raided bookmakers across the country. He admitted the crimes this month and is to be sentenced in April.

If you have information call the police on 101.
