The culprit that robbed Steve Jobs' family home, was sentenced to seven years in prison

IDG News Service reports that Kariem McFarlin, the robber who stole Apple products and other items of equivalent value at $ 60.000 from the home of Steve Jobs' family in last July, has been sentenced to seven years in prison. McFarlin broke into the house, which was in repairing, and stole two iMacs, three iPads, three iPods, Apple TV, jewelry and other items.

"REACT officers found McFarlin with help from Apple security, which tracked where the stolen devices were being used by matching their serial numbers with connections to Apple iTunes servers. The IP address in use matched a line in McFarlin's apartment in nearby Alameda that was also being used by an Apple device registered to a member of his family, according to a police report. [...]

McFarlin admitted to the burglary under questioning by Palo Alto police and said he had stolen from other homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, including two homes in Marin County, four homes in San Francisco County and one home in Alameda County."

Immediately following the burglary, officials indicated that the crime is associated with repairing, which takes place in the house. McFarlin didn't have the orientation to home of Steve Jobs' family. At the time of his arrest, McFarlin had a number of stolen items, while others were distributed to friends, including the iPad, which fell into the hands of the local clown.
