Home of late Steve Jobs burgled

  • Computers and items worth around $60,000 were stolen from the Palo Alto, California home of the late Steve Jobs during a break-in last month.

    Kariem McFarlin, 35, was arrested on August 2 for burglary and selling stolen property.

    In recent months, the number of burglaries in Palo Alto has increased and officials said he may not have realized the home once belonged to the Apple founder, who passed away last October at the age of 56.

    Santa Clara County deputy district attorney Scott Tsui said: "I'd imagine the suspect eventually realised whose house he was in, but outside, it was just another house in Palo Alto."

    The house appeared to have been targeted on July 17 because it was being renovated and seemed less secure.

    If convicted, McFarlin faces up to eight years in prison.
