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's not in movies anymore, noone will touch her after her "incidents". She's a regular thief now. Stop reporting on her.

    Tell ya what... If Lindsay going to prison means no more "Breaking News" headers at the top of the CNN page, then I hope she gets life. I didn't care about LL two years ago, I don't care about her today, I won't care about her in ten years (of course, neither will anyone else...). Please, CNN- Get some self-respect, and stop publishing this crap. She's a junkie, and she's doing what junkies do. The fact that she is a celebrity in only incidental.

    I'm all for throwing her butt in jail for a year – get her face off the TV and give the rest of us a break. Maybe she'll learn something in jail, like how to be an actress. Perhaps they will make a made for television movie about her time in jail.

      Better yet no tv time on this or publicity and that would be added punishment , right now shes getting americas attention and bad publicity isnt always such a bad thing to some celebs just as long as they are getting the atttenttion. She's prob thinking in the back of her mind she will get some work out of this and land some bad girl movie roles, shes apparently still feeling she has more shaking of her goody goody disney image to do.
