Steve Jobs' house robbed of over $60,000, suspect in custody

Back on July 17, 2012, the home of Apple's co-founder, the late Steve Jobs, was burglarized. Over $60,000 of "computers and personal items" were stolen. A suspect was arrested on August 2, 2012, and now sits in jail on a $500,000 bond. Jason Green of the San Jose Mercury News reports:

The deceased Apple co-founder's home on Waverley Street in Palo Alto was burglarized July 17, said Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery, a member of the high-technology crimes unit. More than $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items" were allegedly stolen, but Flattery declined to say whether they belonged to Jobs, who died last year at the age of 56, or another family member.

Flattery says, as best as they can tell, the Jobs home wasn't specifically targeted. Robberies are up 63% in the area due to the predominance of unlocked doors and windows.

Here's hoping the Jobs family gets back everything that was stolen.
