Late Apple Ceo’s Home Burglarized
A new report from The San Jose Mercury News has released information that an unknown suspect broke into late Apple founder Steve Jobs’ home in Palo Alto, California. The purported criminal smashed and grabbed his way through approximately $60,000 USD worth of items before attempting to flee the scene.
The newspaper stated the following concerning the incident:
“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.”
The Jobs family home has been recently undergoing some renovations, and while family members were reportedly staying in the home at the time, police suspect that the construction status of the residence was probably enticing to the criminal. So far, police have no reason to suspect that this was nothing more than a normal burglary and state that the suspected perpetrator had no idea that the residence belonged to the Jobs family.
