Dude steals from Steve
Santa Clara authorities arrested a 35-year-old man who allegedly broke into Steve Jobs' Palo Alto home last month and stole more than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items from the late Apple CEO.

Press reports say that Kariem McFarlin of Alameda was arrested on suspicion of residential burglary; he was also charged with selling the stolen property. He's currently in Santa Clara County Jail, with bail set at $500,000.

McFarlin is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 20.

Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery wouldn't tell reporters if the items taken from Jobs' home on July 17 belonged to Jobs, who died in October 2011, or another family member.

Prosecutors wouldn't give any more details about the case, but did say that McFarlin probably had no idea he was breaking into Jobs' home, which was vacant and under construction at the time.
