Last week’s Steve Jobs’ family home was burgled while it was being renovated, and the thief, Kariem McFarlin, made off with iPads, iPhones, Macs, jewelry, Cristal champagne, Steve Jobs’ wallet and some cash. McFarlin was quickly tracked down through the electronics, but one of the iPads ended up in the hands of a clown named Kenny.
“Kenny the Clown” – also known as Kenneth Kahn – had the iPad, but he says he didn’t steal it. In fact, he didn’t even know he had it.
“In my wildest dreams could I imagine that I would have Steve Jobs’ iPad,” Kahn told “Good Morning America.”
Prosecutors say the theft appears to be random.
McFarlin climbed the scaffolding around the house, found a key and entered through the front door. It wasn’t until he saw a piece of mail that he realized where he was, according to the Mercury News.
Investigators arrested McFarlin on Aug. 2 after tracking his IP address when he used the stolen Apple electronics, according to the Mercury News. He is in jail, and bail has been set at $500,000. He could face eight years behind bars.
But before McFarlin could be locked up, he sold many of the stolen goods for cash and gave Kahn an iPad to repay a debt. When Kahn logged into the internet, investigators found him, too.
“So the next thing the police were at my door, and I am given them the iPad,” Kahn said. “I am not smiling right now.”
He says he had no idea the iPad had a famous owner.
“There was no phonebook,” Kahn said. “I didn’t see any information. It was real nondescript. I wish I could say it had a beam to the moon or something, but nah. It was an iPad.”
