The Items Stolen From Jobs House Included Steve’s Wallet With One Dollar In It

Earlier this morning Cult of Mac reported that 35-year-old homeless man, Kariem McFarlin, broke into Steve Jobs’ house and stole more than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items.

We now have a list of items McFarlin stole, which includes a lot of Apple hardware, and some personal items, like Steve Jobs’ wallet, that still had his license, credit card, and the $1 annual salary he earned as CEO of Apple.

  • 2 iMacs
  • 3 iPads
  • 1 Apple TV
  • 1 Sodastream soda maker
  • 1 $30,000 Tiffany & Co. platinum and aquamarine necklace
  • 1 $28,500 Tiffany & Co. diamond and aquamarine crochet necklace
  • Steve Jobs’ wallet containing Jobs’ drivers license and credit cards

Police were able to apprehend McFarlin after he tried to plug in Steve’s iPads and iMacs. The devices requested a software update from Apple’s servers and led the cops right to him.

    I would really like to know if the police recover and return the wallet. I would appreciate it if you guys would update the article when you find out. Thanks.

    confused on how this was a “homeless man” did you check the facts before you put this out?
    I am glad to see they recovered all of what he stole.

    He knew EXACTLY where he was and EXACTLY what he was doing, then.

    I find it hilarious whenever robbers steal Apple products that they go straight to plugging them in, unaware that it will lead straight to their arrest because they’ll be found by that careless decision. It’s great anyway, it’s always funny to hear how certain day to day uses of iPhone’s and iPad’s lead to users finding their stolen/lost products anyway, like that case where a guy stole a woman’s iPhone and took pictures with it and they were uploaded to her PhotoStream :P

    Looks like Steve should have teamed up with ADT rather than AT&T.

    he claimed he didn’t know he was in Steve Jobs’ house until he found a letter or something from him in one of the things he stole. Hard to believe the story though.

    …..did you check the facts before you put this out?

    Ooops, checkfacts, the article never reports that they recovered all of what he stole. If you read the source, they mention that the jewelry was sent to an out of state dealer. I hope they get it back.

    I wonder if the police would apprehend the burglar just as quickly if it were one of us who was burgled?

    Or do you get priority if you’re a celebrity millionaire?

    Oh my god — this guy deserves 31 years of prison!
