Steve Jobs' home on Waverley Street in Palo Alto was burglarized last month, reveals Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery and a MercuryNews report.

More than $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items" were allegedly stolen, but Flattery declined to say whether they belonged to Jobs, who died last year at the age of 56, or another family member.

On Aug. 2, authorities arrested Kariem McFarlin, 35, of Alameda in connection with the crime, Flattery said. He was arraigned five days later on one count of residential burglary and selling stolen property.

McFarlin remains in county jail on $500,000 bail and could face a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in prison. On August 20th he will return to court to enter a plea.

The Bay Area has reportedly seen a 63% increase in residential burglaries. The increase is attributed to unlocked doors and windows. A "Lock It or Lose It" campaign was recently launched to increase awareness and prevent more robberies.

You do realise that burglarized is not even a word don't you? Try burgled or broken into or robbed. Burglarized makes you sound like a stupid American......oh wait....

So a guy steals I've 1/2 a million dollars worth of stuff that's NOT HIS, sells most of it, and is only charged with 7 years in prison. What's to stop him from doing it again? You think this kind of scum will change after he serves his time? Another example of the US justice system: LE brings them in, judges let them out.
