A thief broke into the Steve Jobs’ home and stole some of the gadgets the late Apple co-founder brought into the world: iPads, iPhones, a Mac Mini, iPods and iMac.
According to a police report released Tuesday, he also stole $60,000 worth of Tiffany necklaces, Cristal champagne – and the most shocking of all – Jobs’ wallet.
But ultimately, Jobs’ company’s technology is what helped track down the burglar.
When Kariem McFarlin, 35, used the stolen devices to connect to the Internet with his iTunes account after the July 17 robbery, police were surrounding his apartment and found multiple items he had taken from the Palo Alto home.
Police said, he then confessed, and wrote a letter of apology to Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
He told police he pulled up to the curb and hopped a six-foot fence. He walked into the icon's open garage workshop, found a key and walked through the house door, the report said.
At first, it was a run of the mill burglary, but then it dawned on him whose house he was in after seeing a letter addressed to Jobs.
McFarlin allegedly burglarized the Waverley Street home of Jobs’ on July 17 or 18. He was arrested on Aug. 2 and is in jail with a $500,000 bail. His next court hearing is scheduled for Aug. 20.
In Job’s black leather wallet were his California driver’s license, a Titanium Black American Express card, a Bank of America Visa credit card and an Apple corporate American Express card.
The Apple Inc. co-founder was one of the richest people in the world when he lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on Oct. 5 had $1 in his wallet.
