Steve Jobs’ House Burglarized, $60K Worth of Property Stolen

By: Josh Wolford - August 14, 2012

The home of late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs was broken into on July 17th, according to the Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney. According to the technology crimes unit, more than $60,000 worth of computers and various “personal items” were stolen in the burglary.

Authorities have yet to reveal the specific items that were taken, and won’t even say whether or not any or all of them belonged to Jobs.

The alleged culprit is 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin, who was arrested on August 2nd and arraigned on August 7th. He’s been charged with burglary and selling stolen property, and could face up to seven years and eight months in jail for the crime if convicted. Police say that he could also face an additional year in jail since the theft was deemed “excessive.”

McFarlin is currently in jail on $500,000 bail and is set to enter a plea on August 20th.

It’s unclear whether or not McFarlin robbed Steve Jobs’ home because it was Steve Jobs’ home, or if he had no idea whose home he was burglarizing. For what it’s worth, the DA doesn’t think that he was aware of whose home it was.

Palo Alto has seen a huge upswing in burglaries as of late – a whopping 63% spike. And they’re not the only Bay Area town to see these types of crimes with higher frequency. Patrol inadequacies and street talk concerning “easy targets” are said to be possible factors. So the late Jobs’ home could have simply been hit during a period of increased criminal activity.

Jobs passed away on October 5th due to complications from a hard-fought bout with pancreatic cancer. His life will be the subject of two upcoming films, one starring Ashton Kutcher and the other penned by Aaron Sorkin.
