Steve Jobs' Home Burglarized, Suspect Arrested After $60,000 in Property Stolen [Updated]
The San Jose Mercury News reports that the Jobs family home in Palo Alto, California was burglarized last month, with over $60,000 worth of "computers and personal items" taken from the home. A suspect has been arrested and charged in the case.
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. [...]
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.
According to Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery, the crime appears to have been a random one, with the suspect apparently not knowing that it was the home of Steve Jobs and his family.

The Jobs home has been undergoing renovation
and it is unclear whether the family is currently living in the house while the work is being performed, but the under-renovation status of the home may have served to entice the perpetrator of the crime.
Update: The Daily has more on the incident, including a copy of the complete 32-page police report.
