Even the house of the co-founder of one of the world’s best smart phone company, Apple, is not safe. Steve jobs’ house, on Waverley Street in Palo Alto was broken in on 17 july, as reported by a member of the high-technology crimes unit, Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flatter.
Computers and personal items, worth more than $60,000 were stolen from the house, as reported by the crime unit. But unlike other cases a suspect, Kariem McFarlin, was arrested for investigation on 2nd of August. He was arraigned five days later on one count of residential robbery and selling stolen property. He is granted the permission to return to court Aug. 20 to enter a plea. But Flatter said, about his punishment that:
McFarlin, who remains in county jail on $500,000 bail, could face a maximum prison sentence of seven years and eight months, including a one-year enhancement for “excessive taking of property.”
Flattery did not utter a word regarding the events that lead to the arrest of McFarlin, but he did mention that the criminal was not awared of the owner of the house and his significance. Moreover, temporarily the house was surrounded by construction barriers and now, for more safety, two electrical panels will be fixed, which will cost more than $31,000.
Well it is a shame to see people stealing from one of the greatest visionary of our time. What do you think?
