McFarlin appeared Monday in Santa Clara County Superior Court for a hearing where he was represented by attorney James Kellenberger.

McFarlin, 35, of Alameda did not enter a plea.

McFarlin was charged earlier this month with burglary and selling stolen property. If convicted, he could face almost eight years in prison.

Police say McFarlin was arrested after using the stolen devices to connect to the Internet.

McFarlin remains jailed on $500,000 bail and is due back in court on Sept. 19.
