Panthers player's North Carolina apartment hit by burglar

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Authorities in North Carolina say the apartment of a Carolina Panthers football player was hit by burglars while he was away at the team's training camp.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating a Monday night burglary at the home of defensive tackle Corvey Irvin.

Officers say they responded to a neighbor's call about a suspicious vehicle at an apartment complex and talked to a witness who said there might have been a break-in. Police found a rear door smashed and several items taken. The missing items include a $1,000 pair of Louis Vuitton sunglasses, a $500 television and an Xbox 360.

Most of the Panthers players are in Spartanburg, S.C., for training camp.

Irvin, 26, is in his second NFL season out of Georgia.
