  • Police Reveal How Jobs' Burglar Was Caught


    As MMi reported yesterday, the estate of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs was recently burglarized. More than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items were taken in the heist, which wasn't targeted at Jobs or his family.

    "The best we can tell is it was totally random," police told the media on Tuesday, adding that a 35-year old Alameda man named Kariem McFarlin was arrested as a suspect in the crime. This morning, however, more details are coming to light with regard to how McFarlin was traced.

    The criminal suspect made off with Jobs' car keys and even his wallet, which reports indicate contained no high dollar amount of cash. The real valuables came in the form of Apple devices... devices that would ultimately give away the robber's position to authorities once they were powered up and connected to Apple's servers.

    McFarlin reportedly told police that his crime was an act of desperation. Living out of his car for some time, the burglar targeted Jobs' house only after viewing an ongoing construction project at the estate.
