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.

    Let's remember the assumption of innocence until guilt is proven beyond a doubt in court. It seems odd that a person would steal a necklace and then wear it in public in front of cameras, unless he or she really didn't realize there was a problem with the ownership.

    Lipstick on a pig may make it look prettier, but underneath the color, it's still a pig.

    Lindsay Lohan, albeit being a star, is still a trailer trash.

    possible defense – she wasn't sober enough to know
    she still had the necklace with her when she walked out
    of the store...
    possible defense -> wasn't the store sales staff
    competent to REMIND her to leave the necklace?
    they allowed her to both take it and walk out with it.
    possible defense; the store staff said she could take the
    necklace for approval later.
    possible defense -> Lindsay thought her manager was
    responsible for paying for this as they handle her
    other personal affairs.

    either way, it's not a slam dunk, for Lindsay who
    might have been slammed drunk given her history.

    i like the girl. like the actress. think both of them
    need re-hab big time.

    Kudos to her shoplifting ability! How the heck do you just wander out of a jewelry store with a two-and-a-half thousand dollar necklace and nobody notices it's gone? Especially if you're a celebrity of sorts; pretty sure everyone in the store must have been watching her to see if they'll be a witness to her next train-wreck. She should dump acting and become a ninja.
