Police: Burglar robs Steve Jobs’ house, didn’t know it was Steve Jobs’ house
If you’re a thief in the market for computers, the Northern California home of the late Steve Jobs might seem like a prime target.
In fact, the home was robbed by a man who jacked more than $60,000 in computers and personal items (yes, apparently his home is still filled with valuables more than 10 months after his death).
35-year-old Kariem McFarlin was arrested and charged with the crime, according to the Mercury News. McFarlin, however, likely had no idea that he was allegedly breaking into the home of the late Apple CEO.
“The best we can tell is it was totally random,” Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery said.
McFarlin is still in county jail on $500,000 bail. He could spend up to seven years, eight months behind bars.
