How Kenny The Clown Got His Hands On Steve Jobs’ Personal iPad

Posted Aug 17, 2012

Kenneth Kahn is a 47-year-old man that received an iPad as a gift from Kariem McFarlin.  McFarlin is the guy that robbed Steve Jobs’ house.  Kahn is known as “Kenny The Clown” and he is an entertainer in the Bay Area.  It turns out that the iPad he received as a gift from was actually Steve Jobs’ personal iPad that was stolen from his house by McFarlin.

All Kahn used the iPad for was to load the “Pink Panther” theme song from iTunes and Michael Jackson during his routine.  McFarlin was accused of stealing iPods, Macs, Steve Jobs’ wallet and driver’s license, and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.  McFarlin found a spare key on the property to get into the home, which was under construction.

“I didn’t notice anything special or anything like that,” said Kahn.  He added that he played with the iPad for three or four days before police had asked for it back.  “It was silver; it looked normal. I was basically using it like an iPod.”

Kahn is known for attempting to run for mayor in Alameda in 2006 and 2010.  He also tried to run for San Francisco mayor in 2007.  He met McFarlin when he coached him at the Encinal High School basketball team over 10 years ago.  They remained close since then.
