Police: Burglar made off with Steve Jobs' wallet

PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) -- Police say the burglar who broke into Steve Jobs' house made off with the Apple Inc. co-founder's wallet with a dollar inside and his driver's license in addition to Apple gadgets and jewelry.

The details of the July 17 theft are contained in a police report and were reported Wednesday by the San Jose Mercury News.

Authorities say the suspect, 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin, realized he was in Jobs' house when he saw a letter addressed to Jobs. The home was unoccupied.

Also taken were iPhones, iPads, iPods, Macs, Cristal Champagne and $60,000 worth of Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Police say McFarlin was arrested earlier this month after using the stolen devices to connect to the Internet.

His public defender did not return a call for comment.
