Lindsay Jeweler May Have Screwed Prosecutor

3/6/2011 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "victim" in the alleged Lindsay Lohan jewelry store heist just cashed in on the surveillance video and in the process may have really messed up the prosecutor's case.

0223_lindsay_leaving_BN_TMZ

The jewelry store -- Kamofie & Co. -- has been working with a broker for the last few days and the broker has been on the horn with numerous media outlets, salivating at the prospect of cashing in.

The video has been sold -- but it's causing fits for the lawyers in the case, particularly the prosecutor.

Lindsay's defense is that the necklace was a loan ... the jeweler begged to differ. So intent is critical, and if the jeweler is called to the stand and admits this was just a convenient way of scoring some quick cash from the media, Kamofie will have about as much credibility as (insert favorite celebrity who lied in "comment" section).

We know lawyers in the case have been in touch with the people at Kamofie, trying to dissuade them from selling the tape ... to no avail.

No word on how this will affect plea bargain negotiations. TMZ broke the story ... in the next few days, Shawn Holley, Lindsay's lawyer, and prosecutor Danette Meyers will meet in chambers with Judge Keith Schwartz ... sources tell us Holley is trying to get the judge to commit to a short jail sentence if Lindsay cops a plea.

Stay tuned ...

I called this jeweler out prior to the Super Bowel, saying this was all a publicity stunt and they were taking advantage of a name like Lindsay Lohan. I do***ented this to a T in the first story about this no name Jeweler and it's owner who didn't know how to run a business. I was taking tigersblood before you all since I had an inside scoop!!! Keep Coming Back!

Has everyone forgotten that TMZ reported on Feb 11 that the jeweler didn't want to press charges?

Why should the jeweler worry about hurting the prosecutor's case? It isn't a case they wanted to see go to court in the first place.

The video clearly shows that the store clerk escorted Lindsey out the door while she wearing the necklace.
No deception to conceal the necklace or deceive the store clerk is evident. Maybe the store clerk did not have authorization to let Ms. Lohan leave the store without the necklance and claimed that it had been stolen. Not a big Lohan fan but it appears that she is right on this one.

I think if Lindsey wanted to steal jewellery why would she steal that cheap ugly chain . That kind of money is like spare change to Lindsey . The store could have asked her for the money but there's no publicity in that. I'm on team Lindsey. Leave her alone and go after the real criminals . What a waste of time and money .
