A California man is in custody after breaking into the late Steve Jobs's home in Palo Alto, Calif.
Kariem McFarlin, 35, was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of burglarizing the Apple co-founder's home and selling stolen property from the July 17 break-in, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery told the paper that McFarlin took more than $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items," although he wouldn't say whether the stolen property had belonged to Jobs himself or to another family member. "The best we can tell is it was totally random," Flattery said of the burglary.
The Associated Press notes that Jobs' home was surrounded by a temporary construction barrier during the month of the burglary. McFarlin's in jail on $500,000 bail and faces a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months. He will enter a plea in court on Aug. 20.
