Police Report: How Lindsay Walked Out with Necklace

2/10/2011 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan was trying on a slew of jewelry before walking out of the store with the $2,500 necklace ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

Lindsay Lohan Necklace
The report outlines Lindsay's every move -- from the time she walked into the store to the time she left -- and it's all on surveillance video.

According to the report, Lindsay walked in and removed her necklaces and placed them on the counter.  The report says, "Ms. Lohan then proceeds to try on numerous rings and three different necklaces including the missing yellow diamond necklace."

The police report then says Lindsay continued shopping while wearing the yellow necklace.

Then, at 6:12 PM, the owner locked the store but let Lindsay and her friend Patrick continue to shop.  That's when Lindsay tried negotiating a ring she had been eyeing, but she didn't like the $3,600 price tag.  Lindsay took $3,000 cash out of her purse and offered it in exchange for the ring, but the owner said no.  Lindsay then said, "Ok, we'll come back tomorrow."

When Lindsay prepared to leave the store, she put her own necklaces back on her neck, along with the yellow necklace in question ... then walked out of the store.

The owner noticed a short time after Lindsay left that the yellow necklace was missing, but figured she took it by mistake and would bring it back the next day.  Lindsay never returned to the store.

The store just wants publicity and Danette Meyers want to become the new District Attorney. It is as simple as that.
Lindsay is innocent

I wish I could casually take $3000 out of my wallet on any given day and go shopping. Sigh.

So then did she ACCIDENTALLY continue to wear the necklace on repeated occasions? If this were true she would have returned it as soon as she realized.

Knowing her she probably tried to make herself seem forgetful at the store so that she would have an excuse later on if she got caught.

I don't believe her for a second- lock her up!

and when she said we'll come back tomorrow the owner didn't notice she was still wearing the necklace since it was the only one she was wearing and lindsay and patrick were the only ones left in the store???

that makes no sense. the owner had to have noticed she was still wearing it, especially if lindsay took off her own necklaces.

This sounds very similar to 'larceny by trick.' Essentially she uses misdirection in creating momentary confusion to perpetrate the theft. Not quite the concept of LBT but very close. If I were prosecuting I would certainly explore this avenue to establish intent.

It's been asked before, why did the store not contact LL about the necklace?

It's looking more and more like this store is just looking for publicity. I think everyone should just stay away from it and move onto another jeweler.

Wouldn't she have felt the necklace around her neck when she put her own necklaces back on?

story has changed yet again - Lohan said the store "loaned" her the necklace.....hhmmmmmm....

if you get home and find you have a necklace from a jewelry store that you know you did not buy, wouldn't you call the store and get it back to them the next day? Yes, most of us would...this little lady seems to think it is okay to just keep wearing it..Thief

@Caligirl
Agree completely and it baffles how the D.A filed THIS case as a felony.

But what about the story where you tried to lead us to believe she's innocent because of supposed "discrepancies" in the jewelry store owner's story?

That's the oldest shoplifting trick in the book. Lindsay has obviously done this before. She sounds like a pro.
