Burglary at home of Steve Jobs


More than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items has been stolen from the Northern California home of the late Steve Jobs.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that a 35-year-old man has been arrested and charged with residential burglary and selling stolen property. He remains jailed with bail set at $500,000 pending an August 20th court hearing.

Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery would not say if the items taken from the Palo Alto home on July 17th belonged to Jobs or another family member. The house was surrounded by a temporary construction barrier in July.

The co-founder of Apple died last year at the age of 56.

Flattery refused to discuss details about the case.

The prosecutor says the man arrested in connection with the burglary was not aware of the home's significance.
