Lindsay Lohan to be charged with necklace theft

Actress Lindsay Lohan will be charged Wednesday with felony grand theft relating to a necklace allegedly taken from a Venice, California, jewelry store last month, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Lohan, 24, will be arraigned on the charge at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Los Angeles Airport Superior Court, Deputy District Attorney John Lynch said.

The actress "allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22," a statement from the district attorney's office said. "The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the
allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.'s office last week."

The necklace, which is valued at $2,500, was handed over to police just before they were to execute a search warrant to look for the jewelry in Lohan's Venice, California, apartment last week.

Lohan was already on supervised probation stemming from probation violations related to a 2007 drunk driving conviction.

    I agree with SouthernPrincess...if she DID steal this $2500 necklace (which is probably like $5 to her), then she really is a lot worse than I can even fathom. Happy that I am not caught up in the Hollywood-syndrome. Shows that money can't buy you happiness or common sense. Wonder if she owed her drug-dealer money for a few fronts?? Hmmmm.

    It could be worse; she could have stolen the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

    If she's in jail, then she can't be in the new Superman movie.

    Sounds like a win-win to me.

    I'm so sorry that I am unable to help you Lindsay. You're a big girl and you know the consequences of your actions. You most likely will have tons of time to reflect, please get yourself together. Maybe this is for the best. Conquer the inner you, rehabilitate it. I'm praying for you.

    Could people PLEASE let up off Ms. Lohan – someone that makes MILLIONS of dollars per picture has no reason to STEAL a $2500 necklace... Sure she has issues – who of us don't???

    TMZ just like every single last pop icon/entertainment thing ever, has had this news for several hours (and most likely a day or so before they posted it). get your stuff together CNN and stop recycling other people's news and passing it as your's not the AP

      The reason why it took CNN longer to post the story is because, unlike TMZ, CNN has a team of journalists (yes, entertainment journalists are journalists too) who are responsible for double-checking facts and being as accurate as possible, unlike the people behind TMZ, who spread whatever the word is on the street from behind their cubicles without prior fact-checking.

    She needs professional psychological help asap, but these stars have so many Yes People around them, that it makes
    it easy for them to dodge real help. Anyone who dares speak the truth loses their job. And Hollywood is thick with sleazy people who work for celebrities, telling them whatever they want to hear. Obviously, Lindsay has not really found the kind of help she needs yet, and she has not yet accepted the fact that she is the cause of her problems. Until she does, all the professional and legal help on the planet won't do much for her. I hope she finds her way to real health and happiness.

    I kinda felt sorry for her when the media was crucifyin her and thought she might turn herself around when she got outta rehab but now I think she should get the same treatment any other citizen would. I hoped she had more character than a thief. Slap her butt in real jail.

      This chick cannot act, dance, sing (thank God she wasn't chosen to sing the anthem) much less blow. It all comes in streams of luck.

    Why does all this matter anyway? Another dumb Hollywierd idiot that vigorously wants attention. And the media sure gives it to her.
