THE HOME OF THE late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been burgled in Palo Alto, California.

Over $60,000-worth of computer equipment and personal items were stolen when the property was burgled on 17 July, the Mercy News reports. Investigators have not indicated to whom the items belonged, but said that a 35-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Kariem McFarlin of Alameda remains in custody with bail set at $500,000 and is due to appear in court next week to enter a plea on charges relating to the break-in, including selling stolen property.

The AP reports that Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery refused to discuss the case, but said he thought it unlikely that the accused saw any significance in the Jobs property.

Steve Jobs passed away last year aged 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
