A BURGLAR has stolen $60,000 worth of computers and personal items from the home of the late Steve Jobs.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that 35 year old Kariem McFarlen has been arrested and charged with the burglary of the late Apple co-founder's Northern California home and for selling stolen property. His arraignment is set for 20 August and he remains in jail with bail set at $500,000.

Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell, and his children reportedly still live at the property but it's believed that the family moved out temporarily because of renovation work. It is unknown if they were at home during the robbery.

For his crime, McFarlen could face up to seven years and eight months in prision, including a one year enhancement for "excessive taking of property".

Tom Flattery, a member of the police high technology crimes unit, was unable to comment on what items were stolen and remained tight-lipped on what could have prompted the burglary.

"The best we can tell is it was totally random," Flattery said about the crime.

Update
It has now been revealed what items were stole from Jobs' house. These include; two Imacs, three Ipads, an Apple TV, a Sodastream, a $30,000 Tiffany platinum necklace, a $28,5000 Tiffany diamond necklace and Steve Jobs' wallet containing $1. µ
