Steve Jobs' former home hit by burglary

The late Steve Jobs' former home in Palo Alto, California was the victim of a burglary In July and today it was reported that a man has been arrested and charged with stealing over $60,000 of computers and other items from the location

The Mercury News website reports that Kariem McFarlin, 35, of Alameda, was arrested on August 2 in relation to the crime. He has been charged with one count of residential burglary and selling stolen property. McFarlin allegedly took items from Jobs' former home on July 17th.

The news report seems to hint that McFarlin may not have even known that the home he was charged with breaking into was the former residence of Jobs, who died on October 5 after a long battle with cancer at the age of 56. The police report, which was released to the media over the weekend, did not indicate the details of what exactly was taken from Jobs' former home.

Meanwhile, McFarlin is in jail under a $500,000 bail charge. He is expected to appear in court on August 20th, where he will publicly enter a plea in his case. If he is convicted of the charge against him, he could face a maximum of seven years and eight months in jail.
