According to a San Jose Mercury News report on Friday, an iPad stolen from the late Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs’ Palo Alto home has recently been found in the hands of a professional clown named Kenneth Kahn, who performs as Kenny the Clown.
Stating that he was not at all aware that the 64GB iPad, on which he played music, had been stolen from Jobs’ home, Kahn said that one of his friends - who owed him money for a holiday which they had planned to take to Hawaii – had given him the Apple tablet in question.
Kahn, 47, also revealed that the police had arrested his friend – 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin of Alameda – on suspicion of burglarizing Jobs’ home on August 2. The professional entertainer also added that he was in possession of the stolen iPad for a few days before police came asking for it, and eventually returned the pilfered device to Jobs’ family.
According to the authorities, McFarlin broke into Job’s under-renovation home on July 17, without having the slightest clue that it was the late Silicon Valley icon’s residence --- till he chanced upon a letter addressed to Jobs.
Meanwhile, reassuring that the contents of the device has not been examined by him when the iPad was in his possession, Kahn said that he had simply downloaded the "Pink Panther" and other songs which he played for the entertainment of kids and tourists during his comic routine.
