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.

And Nicole Enabler, your latest delusional statement still didn't answer my other question: if she's innocent, why not take it to trial and win and not have to face a parole violation and avoid jail time COMPLETELY? Because she's not innocent and because you know she's guilty.

oh man, don't you peeps realise this is the owners version of what happened, there is no audio on the tape so we don't know what was said. lilo said she left the store with the necklace but on loan.

also the store locked their doors, lilo was the only customer, they didn't notice she left with the necklace so she stole it according to them lol this store sure is incompetent. How many time did they change their story to the police?

It's actually silly to be debating this. She obviously took it. She knows she took it. She got caught. She's trying to get it reduced to a misdemeanor to avoid state prison.

Something will be worked out, but she'll still have to serve a small amount of time for her probation violation.

Cycle continues....

Advice for Lindsay. Take care of your legal issues and get out of California ASAP. Resume your career. Sometimes a person needs a change of scenery. New York? Europe?

CA is the safest place for her. I don't know about Europe, but New York will lock her up lickity split, so with as much trouble as she gets in, she'd sure be be doing state jail time in NY.

The store wouldn't sell her the ring at the price she wanted because they knew the cash Lohan had was counterfiet.

Remember when Lohan went to rehab and it was all about how she was going to start a rehab for troubled people (unlike herself, though), and now its theft from a Jewelry store and she's going to start a Jewelry store business???? Yeah, and either Michael or Dina want to do the same. Ha Ha Ha. I'm just surprised Michael hasn't started his own ministry, he seems slick enough to try it. Or maybe he doesn't have a grip on the religion he claims he has?????

Okay, now that sounds BAD! Sounds like she took it to get back at them for not selling her the ring at the price she wanted to buy it.

"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."

My thoughts, exactly. This tactic seems to be Ms. Lohan's MO: creating a ton of confusion to get over on people to get away with something to get her attention high/fix. She does it with the media as well. There's a pattern of behavior here, and it's pretty consistent.

Wouldn't it be lovely if this woman (not a girl, anymore, people, and plenty old enough to know better) would grow the heck up, get some serious help for her head, and use her attention-getting skills for the greater good of society? It would take a miracle, but hey, stranger things have happened.

Harvey!You are such an idiot.I don't know where you went to law School.Does anybody truly believe that a nationally known celebrity was in the Store and nobody was gawking,attending and watching her put the necklace around her neck? Where was eveybody? Out to lunch?They are lying.If they knew there is no theft. They waived paper work.When the call was not returned by Lindsay,they concocted the story.

Yes. So what's the problem. Bring the huge crowd in to testify and her troubles are over! There were probably dozens of photographers there to do***ent it too! They'll all be visible on the store tape I'm sure.

@happyday...in the police report it says that the store owner originally reported that Lindsay put the necklace in her purse per the surveillance, and then when the cops came to get the tapes, they said they were mistaken and the tapes showed Lindsay leaving with the necklace on her neck! How is this not changing their story? This is in the police reports!

Here is why Lindsay did it, for publicity for this:

Lindsay Lohan wants to open her own boutique -- selling something she knows a little about -- jewelry and fashion!

The Mean Girls star, 24, is making plans to open two stores, one in Venice, California, and Soho, New York, in partnership with mother Dina, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.


"Both Dina and Lindsay love the fashion industry and are excited to do this together," a close family friend told Radaronline.com.

The mother-daughter fashionistas have plans to sell both clothing and jewelry, we're told, while the rehabbed starlet splits her time between both coasts.

"Right now, Lindsay loves being in Venice in her new home and enjoys the walk into town," said the source.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Lohan entered a plea of not guilty to a felony grand theft charge at the Airport Courthouse in Los Angeles on Wednesday, before Superior Court Judge Keith L. Schwartz.

He warned the starlet not to "push your luck" between now and her next courtroom appearance.

Lohan allegedly stole a $2,500 "one of a kind" necklace from a jewelry store in Venice Beach, California, as we first revealed.

While her mom was not in court, the pair have been in constant contact according to the pal, discussing their grand plan.

"Lindsay and her mom will be looking for a place in downtown Manhatten as soon as her ban to travel has been lifted," said our source.

"For now she's awaiting her February 25 probation hearing and preparing for a visit from her mom and siblings."
