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.

Doesn't make any sense.

Why would she buy a ring if she previously said she could get jewelry for free, like she said with the necklace?

Idiot logic

So Delmar Enabler, that means that it's impossible she could have stolen the necklace because she made repeat trips to the store before the incident in question? You ask me, that sounds like she was sizing up the necklace for a future theft when it was a good opportunity to steal it. It's certainly not the first time Lie-ho has been accused of stealing something, I don't see how she gets the benefit of the doubt in this case.

She couldn't spend the money she had on her for the necklace because that was for Joe the dealer.

Is the charge going to be "shoplifting" or "robbery"?

Anyone know?

She stole a fur coat, she stole a bunch of clothes, she stole a necklace. Wonder how many other thinks the Ugly Bitch has stolen? Lindsay MUST be retarded to think Laws don't pertain to her.

Two weeks after being caught stealing the necklace Lindsay says she found two witness that say she didn't steal it. "Her assistant Eleanor and her friend Patrick were with her and they saw everything and they both know that Lindsay didn’t steal the necklace.”

Why did it take so long for her to find those witnesses? LOL!

First of all, the necklace isn't that great. Second of all, why the hell doesn't she just stay home and rent a movie for a change?

@WhyNot Yes, put Lindsay away and go after another young celeb women. The men act like complete degenerates and the women don't to the same severity yet the women are judged harshly and called names. Probably they'll want to fry Miley Cyrus next, she seems "entitled" also I guess. It's sad, Charlie Sheen is violent, he is the one that is in danger of an OD more than Lindsay in that he's been carted off to the hospital how many times after a bender? Has Lindsay seen the hospital in the last 18 months for an OD? He has 5 children, 4 under the age of 10 and gets a fraction of the acrid, nasty statements in these forums that a Britney, Lindsay, or Miley gets. What gives people?

“Her assistant Eleanor and her friend Patrick were with her and they saw everything and they both know that Lindsay didn’t steal the necklace.” According to the first source, the store let the 24-year-old actress take the necklace hoping she would get them publicity. The source says Lindsay’s witnesses will back this up. The store got angry because Lindsay did not get them any publicity, the source claims.
------------------
I wonder if all 3 would agree to a lie detector test? Or if they would be ordered to take one... because the same assistant who said she was shocked that Lindsay lied about the necklace and even being at the store that day is now a witness to back up her story? Fishy to me.

If she was so interested in a ring, why didn't she arrange to borrow that item?

Her father says he's been supporting Lindsay with lots of money since she got outta rehab. She's broke but she's gonna piss away $6,000 cash she got from her father on jewelry?
