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.

    Who cares? She'll get sent to rehab again so she doesn't have real consequences to her actions and her enabler gold-digging mother will be right there to tell everyone how her poor baby is being treated unfairly.

    This is one person, who will continue to spiral downward, until they crash and burn.

    The media needs to get off of her, and forget her.

    Stop, take a breath and get the help you need. Stop running from your issues and your little drama life and go check into rehab.
