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.

    she is nuts or druged out of her mind. Truly sad because she's really talented. Think her mom is a terrible influence; all she does is party.

    It is too bad this type of news gets out, I say that for the young generation who is linsey's age and younger. She is a bad example of a public role model. i don't know why every time this girl gets in trouble,it is considered top news. She really needs to leave show business, it is apparent she can't handle the pressure of fame.

    If they find her guilty, I mean the necklace was returned to police right before they were to search her home...who returned it???...and she doesn't go to jail, then it sends a really bad message to everyone. If you're rich, pretty and a celebrity, then the laws don't apply to you. I don't even think she's that pretty, actually.

    Personally, I hope they find her guilty and put her in prison for 60 months.

      They already sent that message during her last 3 court dates.

      Gary, I just had to reply to your post. I agree they should give her the same treatment they would to any one else. Just because they call her an actress. There is nothing pretty about her, and she really has no talent. How she got to be an actress is beyond me. She can't act to save her but. She was just in the right place at the right time, just like that nasty trash Snookie.

    Regardless of opinions, if the media gave me the attention they're giving her, at least 1 in 5 kids would start falling over by themselves in forested areas. Silently, of course.

      Hey Jennifer, you say you go to an Ivy League School? How come in your comment you couldn't spell smarter? Guess your parents need to get their money back. If Lindsey rules, the world is on bigger trouble than she is.
