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.

    This isn't Breaking News – but she shouldn't be given anymore second chances, enough is enough. She needs to grow up and except the consequences to her actions.

    Um, ok, forget the fact that this is HEADLINE NEWS. "The owner of a Venice-area store reported that a "one of a kind necklace" was stolen on January 22, Los Angeles police have said. The necklace was given to police just before detectives were to search for it in Lohan's Venice home, Los Angeles police said last week." If it was ONE OF KIND, and she stole it, how do they have it to give it to the POLICE? GREAT WRITING CNN.

    A $2500 necklace?
    I suppose she did it for the attention.
    She just couldn't stand being out of the news cycle for so long...

    Exactly! Who cares??! She's going to be out of jail soon enough in any case. What she needs is a life sentence in prison. That'll do her good. If a non-Hollywood American repeatedly ended up in rehab, assaulted rehab workers and then stole would end up with a much longer term in jail. This loser will get out in no time! We need justice!

    Women go figure.I always said they need.Its a must they have.,I truly believe this. Its a nesting thing.like a bird with shiny things.Its a must they be supported and can support themselves. But a return of the item shows great bravery on the part of the team that believes in her.I am part of that team.

      Believe it or not, quite a lot cases of theft like this (including shoplifting) are committed by people that can actually afford the things they are stealing.

      I don’t’ know what Lohan’s excuse is other than she’s a moron. I wonder if she’ll use her “F U” nail polish for the DA this time.

    There's a mention about merely being drunk but not being a bingeing cokehead. Great PR by someone here.

    Lohan’s an idiot. The best thing we can hope for is she stops acting, gets out of the public eye for good and gets the HELL away from her money-grubbing father and abusive mother.

    I know I won’t pay to see anything with Lohan in it. Who would? And who would insure her just to actually be able to cast her? It’s s sad day when the likes of Paris Hilton can act as better role models then Lohan.

    Not news but it's sorta fun seeing this trainwreck happen. With her and Charlie Sheen who needs daytime drama? Wonder which one will croak first?
