Lindsay Lohan is in trouble yet again. A shop owner in Venice, California recently filed a police report, accusing the actress of stealing a $2,500 necklace from her store. TMZ.com reported that the case against Lohan is “strong” and criminal charges will likely be filed against the starlet — who is currently on probation. RadarOnline.com reported that a friend of the actress’s turned the necklace into police earlier this week, shortly before police executed a search warrant at her home. Supposedly there is surveillance footage of Lindsay wearing the necklace in the store and a photo of her wearing it again a week later.
A law enforcement source told the website, “Lindsay is being accused of stealing high end jewelry. A search warrant was requested Tuesday at the Airport Court to search Lindsay’s house for the item of jewelry in question. Lindsay has been photographed and there is video of her wearing the jewelry she is accused of stealing.” The LAPD reportedly handed their file to the D.A.’s Office on Wednesday. Lindsay is due in court on February 25 for a probation hearing.
Lindsay’s Dad Denies Accusations
Michael Lohan spoke out to deny the accusations surrounding his daughter. He told RadarOnline.com, “Although I don’t really like commenting on my daughter and this time has been a very stressful time, none of us need this added stress to our lives. I’m not going to let people continue to distort things: Lindsay never stole a necklace.”
He explained that “people give Lindsay things all the time on consignment and when they need to be returned, they’re returned. Bottom line — that’s it.”
A Lindsay source told TMZ that the starlet gave it back to a stylist, but the stylist neglected to return it on time. Supposedly the stylist is the one who returned it to the LAPD.
