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.

    Just for the record, guys, they do give you the gist of the story when it appears as breaking news. If you're not interested, why click on it? Just move on and stick to your highly intellectual news you supposedly get elsewhere.

      John, this is breaking news because it just happened. Breaking news is information that is being made known with in a very short time of an event that is of interest to a lot of people.

    In other news, a traffic light has just turned green. That's right, a light which was once red, is now green and CNN is there to cover it live..... That's about as interesting as this story.

    More than sad. She is a classic example of abuse. I don't see anyone who truly loves this woman so no wonder her life means little to herself. It is way beyond trying to save her career now. It is now a race to save her life. She really needs someone she can trust to know who she really is.

    What makes me so mad about this story is that she will get another slap on the wrist and either sent home or back to rehab.

    The rest of us would be in jail.

    Seriously, how are we supposed to take a news organization like CNN seriously when this kind of crap is considered breaking news. I'm sorry CNN are you a respectable news agency, or a trashy tabloid from the supermarket.
