Lindsay Had Enough Cash For Jewelry Purchase

2/8/2011 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan had more than enough cash on hand when she took the $2,500 necklace out of an L.A. jewelry store ... sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County District Attorney's Office will file felony grand theft charges against Lohan any day ... though we're told it won't be today.

Sources connected to the case tell us ... Lindsay had around $6,000 in cash with her because she had been eyeing a ring in the store, which was going for $3,400.  Lindsay had gone to the store several times previously, debating whether to buy it.

Short story ... Lindsay had enough money to buy both the ring and the necklace on the day in question.

We've learned the surveillance video shows Lindsay walking out of the store wearing the necklace, without paying.  In the video, the necklace is partially hidden by other jewelry Lindsay is wearing around her neck.

I though her first story was she never was in that store until she was told there was video. Something seems very fishy with her and not just her crotch.

Just to echo so many other posts...
why is this news?

How many stories have you run about how "broke" the Lohan family is?

Did you mean "broke", financially---or just "broke". Evidently the latter...
She's walking around with that much cash, just for ****s & giggles?
Where did that cash come from?

And, yes...Dino IS a loser. The truth hurts.

OMG I am soooo tired of this girl and her endless excuses.

She needs to be held ACCOUNTABLE

Winona Ryder at Sak's was hysterical--You Tube that mess. She strolls out of the store weighed down in tons of stolen merchandise.

The rich steal for the Euphoria--For a coke head like Linds it's probably just as effective as a line of coke.

Stop making excuses for this trainwreck. She walked out with out paying it's theft --open and shut case.

If the assistant did not fill out paperwork to have the item "loaned" to her than slap the cuffs on the b**i**tch and let's call it a day.

Emma Stone is a fresh version of Lindsey Lohan--She looks similar (Did you see Easy A??? Goodbye Lindsey's career--Now you have a sober girl who will show up for work on time to cast in movies)

Why is there ever a reason to carry 6K in cash if a drugs are not involved? I'm pretty sure coke dealers don't accept Mastercard--unless it's Whitney Houston's crack dealer who apparently issues receipts which each drug sale

Alright!!!! More Lohan news. Let the menopause express leave the station. Bitch away. Couldn't care less about Lohan but I'm loving all these hysterical comments. Think most of you need a good dose of estrogen.

Having cash for the purchase makes NO DIFFERENCE to a prosecutor or the police or store security for theft and shoplifting. Shoplifters often think they are protected from jail if they have cash for the items they are stealing. Not so. There are various other legal defenses but having the money isn't one of them that holds water.

Gold is selling for over 1300 per ounce today. That is an ounce of pure gold, the chain is at best 14 carat or less than half the value of pure gold by weight. A chain that fine is at most $300 in gold value. The semi precious stones and the craftsmanship time also have value, your right about that. How much value ???

I still say, there are dozens of craftsmen (and ladies) who could duplicate that chain exactly and be very happy to get $900 for the job.

To establish the legal value of that chain you have to prove what it was sold for the last time it changed hands.

"Lindsay had gone to the store several times previously, debating whether to buy it...."

That's the dumbest thing I ever heard. She doesn't steal things because she doesn't have the cash. She steals them because she's a self-entitled little brat.
