Apple founder Steve Jobs' home in Palo Alto, Calif. in 2011. A suspect has been arrested and charged in connection with the theft of computers and personal items worth more than $60,000 from the Northern California home of the late Jobs.

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.

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.
