It seems that honor among thieves does not include robbing the house of a great American icon, the late Steve Jobs. His home that is located on the 2100 block of Waverley Street in Palo Alto was actually trespassed last month – July 17th, to be exact. It took a fortnight or so for the police to successfully perform an arrest on Kariem McFarlin, the 25-year old male from Alameda, after he stole more than $60,000 worth of “computers and personal items” from Jobs’ home. Just last week, McFarlin was arraigned on one count of residential burglary and selling stolen property.
With a bail of $500,000, it does not seem likely that McFarlin is going to post, and with that, there is the potential sentence of a long jail term amounting to seven years and eight months hanging over his head. No idea on what the stolen property comprised of, as both the police and the District Attorney’s office decided to keep things close to their chest, with McFarlin most probably not know that it was Steve Jobs’ residence that he broke into. It would be ironic if he were listening to tunes on his iPhone or iPod while performing the nasty act. Ah well, at least he is in custody now.
