  • A Leavenworth man has pleaded no contest to burglary and other charges in four cases, according to a prosecution official.
    Lance Whitney, 43, entered the pleas Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.
    He pleaded to two counts of residential burglary, one count of possession of methamphetamine and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
    One of the burglaries occurred sometime between November 2012 and January at a residence on McIntyre Road in the county. The other burglary was committed in May in Lansing, according to information from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson.
    The firearm violation also occurred in May when Whitney reportedly sold a .22 caliber handgun in the parking lot of Leavenworth business. He had been convicted of a felony drug charge within the last five years, according to Thompson.
    The methamphetamine crime also took place in May. Whitney was stopped in Leavenworth as deputies with the Sheriff's Office investigated one of the burglaries. After he was stopped, he was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, according to Thompson.
    Sentencing for the four cases is scheduled for Jan. 17.
