Lindsay Lohan -- Surveillance Tape Backs Her Story

3/1/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan was in no hurry to leave Kamofie & Company the day she allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace -- in fact, she yakked with the owner for several minutes before leaving the store.

According to sources who have reviewed the tape, Lindsay wore the necklace almost the entire time she was in the store. We're told the surveillance video clearly shows Lindsay trying on the necklace, checking herself out in the mirror, and appearing to ask her friend and the store owner for their opinion (there is no audio on the tape).

We're told Lindsay took off her own necklace to try on the store's necklace.

Lindsay never took the necklace off, according to our sources, and she wore it in plain view for the next 45 minutes while she tried on several rings.

According to our sources, before walking out of the store, Lindsay put her own necklace back on, but it in no way obstructed the store's necklace.

Even better for Lindsay, with the store's necklace in plain view, Lindsay is seen talking to the owner for several minutes before strolling out.

Doesn't sound like the actions of someone that tried to steal a necklace, does it?

Are these "sources" Blair Berk and Shawn Holley? Now that the defense has gotten the surveillance tape, it's time to plant a little slant.

Actually, yes. It does.

Behaving as if nothing is wrong, and chatting nonchalantly to appear like everything is normal is a tactic used by thieves who know what they're doing.

Looking nervous, leaving quickly, cutting conversations short; those are behaviors that have been identified by loss-prevention experts that tip them off that the person may have or did steal something.

It's not her behaviour in the store so much that makes her look dishonest. It's the changing of her story. It's the fact that she kept the necklace until she found out she was in trouble for it. There is no way she didn't notice it was on her the next time she went to shower, which you assume, would have been within 24 hours of her trip to the store.

That sounds EXACLY how someone would steal it! In plain sight! Why didnt she take the thing BACK to the store when she knew she had it!?!?
Without a DOUBT she 100% intended to steal that necklace.
If she put it in her purse she can get caught red handed! If they say "HEY! Bring that necklack back!" before she left the store Lindsay can just blow it off like its a mistake!

SHE STOLE THAT NECKLACE!!!!

Good riddance!    

Sources = Lohans. The DA indicated it would be a slam dunk, so to speak.

Yeah, it doesn't really matter how she got it out of the store, just that she did. What's going to hurt her is what she did after she had it. Which was to keep it.

How much is Blair Berk and Shawn Chapman paying Harvey to push their version? lol!
Seeing that tmz hasn't seen the tape this clearly came from lindsays defense. A lot of Legal posturing in gossip pages doesn't really matter. Lets wait and see till they get into court.

This is going to trial. Lindsay is going to to be PROVEN Linnocent in a court of law. Hollywood heavyweights are already lined up behind her. As much as most here to hate to accept it several major projects are already being discussed.

Lindsays name sells tickets. Her talent far exceeds any other actress of her generation. These last couple years have been tough, but they have imbuded Lindsay with a perspective and maturity far beyond what other actress her age offer.

Lindsay is a once in a generation talent. In a couple of years the comeback will be complete. That comeback will be the story, not these manufactured lies by the tabloids. What will be your excuses when she in proven LINNOCENT?

She also could have been hanging around to see if anyone asked her to pay for the necklace. I don't know the layout or anything, but thieves, especially ones like that just don't steal & run, they hang out like they belong there. How did Ms Ryder do it?

There are zero 'Hollywood heavyweights' lined up behind Lindsay. She's about to go to jail.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of hers really, but I don't think this was intentional. I think the girl is just an airhead/idiot.
