Bills safety Whitner has home robbed on game day

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Someone stole $400,000 worth of jewelry from Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner's home while he was at Ralph Wilson Stadium for a home game.

Whitner spokeswoman Patricia Horton tells The Associated Press that Whitner found out about the larceny after Sunday's win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Whitner, who lives in the suburb of Hamburg, returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown in the Bills' 33-20 win.

Horton says Whitner is upset and hurt by the theft and is on "high alert" because he doesn't know who is responsible.

She says he isn't interested in pressing charges and just wants his belongings back.

The theft comes a week after teammate Leodis McKelvin's front lawn was vandalized by two teenagers following Buffalo's loss to New England.
