Santa Clara County police have arrested Kariem McFarlin, 35, of Alameda, Calif., for allegedly stealing $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items" from deceased Apple founder Steve Jobs' home on July 17. An attorney for the police department said the burglary was "totally random," so Jobs' home wasn't targeted. In the first half of the year, Bay Area cities have seen double-digit jumps in burglaries. McFarlin could face up to seven years and eight months in prison if he's convicted.
