Steve Jobs’ Home Burglarized in Crime Wave

The rich are just like everyone else; they put their pants on one leg at a time. They also get robbed just like everyone else.

The San Jose Mercury News is reporting this morning that the home of Apple Founder Steve Jobs was burgled last month. The break in happened on the 17th, and according to police reports the thief made off with over 60 thousand dollars worth of computers and personal items.

It’s not clear whose property was taken, but the police do have a suspect in custody. He was arrested on the second of August and is currently being held on charges of residential burglary and selling stolen property.

Here’s more from the source:

Bay Area cities have seen double-digit jumps in burglaries during the first half of the year. Police in Palo Alto attributed the city’s 63 percent increase to unlocked doors and windows. A “Lock It or Lose It” campaign launched earlier this year seeks to change that behavior.

Details about the burglary at Jobs’ residence were scarce Monday. The crime was listed in the weekend report log released to the media, but police referred all questions about it to the district attorney’s office. Lt. Zach Perron said that was because charges had been filed.
