UPDATE: Although it is being denied by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, TMZ reported Saturday morning that Lindsay Lohan will indeed face felony theft charges.
Sources connected with the case tell TMZ the L.A. County District Attorney will file the case as early as Monday.
…If convicted … Lindsay faces a maximum of three years in state prison.
Sources connected with Lindsay tell TMZ … Lindsay says she’ll fight the charge and she’s sticking with her story that she took the jewelry on loan.
The case could also have a dramatic impact on her ongoing DUI case in Beverly Hills since she is currently on probation
UPDATE: The D.A.’s office just issued a statement to an L.A. wire service that no decision has been made. TMZ reiterates — Lindsay Lohan will be charged with felony grand theft.
Either Lindsay Lohan is dumb, or her true addiction is getting in trouble for doing stupid sh*t. And saying stupid sh*t.
As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Lindsay Lohan has been accused of stealing a very expensive necklace from Kamofie & Company, an upscale jewelry store in Venice, CA. Apparently the ball starting rolling after the jewelry store says he saw a picture of Lindsay Lohan wearing the necklace in question.
… the store’s owner gave cops surveillance tape of Lindsay wearing the necklace in question. The owner also gave cops a photo of Lindsay wearing the one-of-a-kind, $2,500 necklace a week later.
Sources say Lindsay has frequented the store since moving to Venice.
In her defense, Lindsay claims the necklace was loaned to her, and that her stylist simply didn’t return it in time. The District Attorney’s office isn’t so sure, and is looking into bringing felony theft charges against Lohan.
In response to Lindsay’s claim the necklace was on loan, the jewelry store is calling shenanigans, saying there are several hoops one must jump through before anyone can borrow anything.
The jewelry store owner Sofia tells TMZ, “When we loan out jewelry, we have a whole procedure that needs to be done. There is paperwork that needs to be filled out and there needs to be insurance information given or credit card information in case something happens with the jewelry.”
We’re told the paperwork entails an itemized list of what the customer is borrowing, a signed contract claiming responsibility for the item while it’s out of the store, and credit card and insurance information in case anything goes wrong.
It sure sucks to be Lindsay Lohan right now.
