Newspapers this week told the story of Karim McFarlin, 35, who robbed the Jobs family's Palo Alto home last month. The total damage was approximately $ 60,000. Personal belongings and Apple products were stolen.
The new report sheds more light on the crime. Stolen items are also listed. Among them: valuable jewelry and Steve's wallet with an annual salary … which is one dollar. This is exactly how Steve set himself up for the effort.
This decision was made after Steve Jobs took over as CEO. The token salary of $ 1 per year was set shortly after Jobs returned to the helm of Apple in 1996. As such, he wanted to demonstrate his faith in the future potential of the struggling company. Steve once joked that his annual salary was 50 cents for one meeting. The other 50 cents was the payment for his performance.
As Jobs himself said:
Other stolen items, according to The Daily:
• three iPads
• two iMacs
• Apple TV
• spare key
• Mercedes car keys
• one platinum necklace from Tiffany & Co. for $ 30,000
• one diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. for $ 28,500
Steve Jobs's widow was informed that her home was burglarized after the manager discovered that spare keys were missing. The house is under renovation and is surrounded by a temporary construction fence. Arriving, the manager saw that everything in the house was turned upside down. As befits a decent citizen, he called the police.
Most interesting is how the police arrested the suspect:
McFarlin was quickly caught. Almost immediately after turning on one of the stolen Apple devices, which showed their location. Local police in Palo Alto quickly identified McFarlin's whereabouts. The poor fellow at this time "googled" the request where to sell the stolen jewelry.
According to the report, the thief motivated his actions by a complete lack of money.
McFarlin explained to the police that he lived in his car and accidentally stumbled upon Jobs' abandoned house. Slept on this street. The idea to make this house the target of his first robbery came instantly.
As for Steve Jobs's wallet, it contained an American Express Titanium Black Card, an American Express corporate card, a Visa credit card, a driver's license and a letter.
