So yes, maybe this robbery was a laughing matter after all
Last month, a thief broke into the home of former Apple exec and founder Steve Jobs, making away with $60,000 worth of electronics. Police have since arrested a suspect, 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin, but law enforcement is still working on rounding up all the looted gadgets. And some of Jobs' personal toys are starting to show up in some unusual hands: Namely, in those of street performer Kenny the Clown.
Kenny the Clown, legally known as Kenneth Kahn, was allegedly given one of Steve Jobs' personal iPads by McFarlin. The two were friends — McFarlin isn't just your typical, run-of-the-mill fan of the clown street arts.
Kahn had incorporated the 64GB device into his act, using it to play the theme to the "Pink Panther" and assorted Michael Jackson songs to entertain children. The performer used the device for three or four days before police located him and recovered the device for Jobs' family.
"It was Steve Jobs' iPad — literally," said Kahn to the Mercury News. "It would be like getting a football from Joe Montana that was stolen out of his house."
