A man on parole for burglary has been charged with burglarizing the Kansas City apartment of Chiefs running back Dexter McCluster, making off with thousands of dollars' worth of electronics, watches and other property. The Jackson County prosecutor's office charged 31-year-old Daniel LaBlance on Tuesday with one count of second-degree burglary. Police say McCluster and his girlfriend returned to the apartment in the city's Westport section the afternoon of Nov. 13 and found the door kicked open and the rooms ransacked. Investigators said DNA from blood left at the scene led them to the suspect's home, where they found McCluster's stolen property. Online court records did not list a lawyer for LaBlance, who does not have a listed phone number.

Chiefs' Hali lets play dictate what people think

Ryan Succop, from Mr. Irrelevant to player of the week

Two years ago, Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop became the last pick in the draft, giving him the dubious honor of being known as “Mr. Irrelevant.” On Sunday, his relevance to the biggest upset of the year helped secure his second career AFC special-teams player of the week award.  In a 19-14 win over the previously…

What a twist of fate: Kyle Orton beats the Packers

What a cruel twist of fate that the Bears’ season all but turned to dust with Caleb Hanie at quarterback Sunday — just after the Chiefs’ Kyle Orton engineered an upset victory against the previously unbeaten Packers in Kansas City. And not only did an ex-Bear beat the vaunted Packers, but it was...
