Why would anyone steal from Steve Jobs?
Well, 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin, of Alameda, CA has been arrested and charged with burglary and selling stolen property from the home of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
According to the San Jose Mercury News:
McFarlin stole computers and personal items worth more than $60,000 from the Northern California home of the late Steve Jobs.
Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery won't say if the items taken from the Palo Alto home on July 17 belonged to Jobs or another family member. The house was surrounded by a temporary construction barrier in July.
The co-founder of Apple Inc. died last year at the age of 56.
Flattery refused to discuss details about the case.
Prosecutors say McFarlin didn’t know it was the home of Steve Jobs. He remains jailed with bail set at $500,000 pending an Aug. 20 court hearing.
The co-founder of Apple Inc. died last year after a long battle with cancer.
