Police say the man accused of breaking into Steve Jobs' house made off with the Apple Inc. co-founder's wallet with $1 inside, in addition to Apple gadgets and $60,000 in jewelry.

The police report details of the July 17 theft 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.
