Steven Jobs home burglarized, computers and personal items stolen

More than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items have been stolen from the Palo Alto, California, home of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, according to news reports.

Kariem McFarlin, 35, of Alameda was arrested and charged with residential burglary and selling stolen property, according to a report in the San Jose Mercury News. He remains in the Santa Clara County jail on $500,000 bail pending a court hearing on Monday, the report said.

The arrest of McFarlin is just now becoming public as the robbery occurred back on July 17.

McFarlin could face a maximum prison sentence of seven years and eight months, Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery told the Mercury News. Flattery declined to say whether the computers and other items belonged to Jobs or another family member, the newspaper reported.
