One would think that if someone was going to burglarize Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) founder Steve Jobs’ house, they would at least be doing it on purpose.
That wasn’t the case, though, when 35-year-0ld Kariem McFarlin, from Alameda, Calif., did just that. McFarlin hit the house, which is currently under renovation and surrounded by a temporary barrier — and stole many computers and other personal items.
Police arrested him shortly after and believe he chose the house completely at random.
The recovered items — which may or may not have belonged to Jobs — are being auctioned off by police for around $60,000.
Other than that, little information about the incident or the offender has been released.
