Burglar broke into Steve Jobs’ Palo Alto Home, $60,000 of property stolen
As officials continue to report that homes in the Bay Area have been getting burglarized at an increasing rate, we’ve now learned that even the security in place at the home of the late Steve Jobs couldn’t deter the thieves. Nearly one month ago, someone broke into Jobs’ Palo Alto home and took off with about $60,000 worth of property.
Now, when you’re talking about theft and the home of Apple’s co-founder, the most burning question has to be—what was taken? In this case, few details have been made available, but it appears that suspect Kariem McFarlin took off with personal items, among which “computers” were said to be included. Of course, we have no idea if these were standard machines, prototypes, or even if they belonged to Jobs himself. Santa Clara County officials have also declined to say whether or not any of Jobs’ family is still living in the home, which is currently undergoing renovations.
As for this McFarlin character, the 35-year-old could face as many as seven years in jail for the crime. It appears that the part of the plan he couldn’t pull off without getting caught was “selling stolen property.”
I’m curious to know how the individual went about getting inside the home, which you’d think resembles a fortress with all its security… Perhaps the system was compromised as a result of the current construction? I guess that’s for officials to know and us to wonder.
