The San Jose Mercury News reports that police have arrested Kariem McFarlin, 35. He has been charged with household burglary and selling stolen goods. He is currently in prison and his bail of $500,000 has been set, ahead of an August 20 hearing.

Santa Clara County prosecutor Tom Flattery refuses to confirm whether or not the goods taken from the home on July 17 belonged to Jobs or any of his family.

Jobs died in 2011 aged 56. The prosecutor says McFarlin was probably not aware of the home's famous connections.
