Santa Clara Country prosecutor Tom Flattery told Mercury News that a 35-year-old Alameda man named Kariem McFarlin allegedly broke into Jobs’s home on July 17th without being aware of the home’s significance. Flattery wouldn’t specify whether the stolen goods were owned by the late Apple CEO or if they belonged to a family member. McFarlin has a court hearing scheduled for August 20th and remains in custody with bail set at $500,000.
