PALO ALTO (CBS/AP) — More than $60,000 worth of computers and personal items has been stolen from the Palo Alto home of the late Steve Jobs.

35-year-old Kariem McFarlin, of Alameda, was arrested and charged with residential burglary and selling stolen property. He remained jailed with bail set at $500,000 pending an Aug. 20 court hearing.

Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery wouldn’t say if the items taken from the Palo Alto home on July 17 belonged to Jobs or another family member. The house was surrounded by a temporary construction barrier in July.

The co-founder of Apple Inc. died last year at the age of 56.

Flattery refused to discuss details about the case.

The prosecutor said McFarlin was likely unaware of the home’s significance.
