Lindsay Lohan -- Attempted Retail Robbery Victim!

4/15/2011 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan faces grand theft felony charges for a necklace that we found out was marked up 300%!!!

0414_lilo_neckalce_x17_kamofie_ex

TMZ has learned the necklace designer sold Kamofie & Co. the piece for $850 -- that price tag does not qualify for felony grand theft, which requires a value of $950 or more.

Kamofie was trying to sell the necklace to Lindsay for $2,500 bucks.

As we first reported, we're told Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will argue the D.A. should only be allowed to charge her client with a misdemeanor because of the value of the necklace.

But even if Holley loses that argument, Kamofie's owner -- who we're told will be testifying at Lindsay's preliminary hearing -- is going to have a PR problem for the mark-up and for selling the surveillance video and shopping a book deal.

This is the stupidest argument I've heard come out of the whole Lindsay fiasco YET.

Do you know how much a Chanel dress is actually worth? 10 dollars? Okay, let's be generous: 20 dollars. So what, Chanel marks it up to 500 dollars and somehow it's both "a PR nightmare" AND okay to steal their stuff cause it's worth less than a bottle of good shampoo?

Stupid.

Good riddance!    

This is the same ridiculous Lohan grifter 3 card monty tactics of saying that products in the stores she frequently steals from can only value the stolen items at wholesale! Giving the long history of being a scofflaw, I hope they throw the book at her and it sounds like the DA is going to do exactly that. She is a loser no matter how much BS these fools try to spin and her name is in the crapper. The general public is sick of these grifters thumbing their nose at the law and since rehab and other methods of controlling her sticky fingers and stupidity have failed, jail remains the only answer. Jail her or enabler onto even greater acts of self destruction. I, for one, will be perfectly happy to have the name of Lohan quickly fade into the criminal history books in a dark and forgotten place!

@Hime
That isn't the same.

@Bash

HA HA HA

@Dann
Kamofie obviously can't be trusted so who knows what they said to Lindsay or what the arrangement was.

Don't we all face the same issue every time we buy something? The only difference is that Lohan has enough money to buy it without being concerned. If I can pay markup, so can Lohan. If I can refrain from stealing, so can Lohan.

Nicole Hervey tells us that she is a Brit so maybe shoplifting laws are different across the pond?

Nicole, are you even an American citizen? If not, then don't pontificate to us about shoplifting.

Bash you can't use words like responsibilities, consequences, prerequisite, abdication(I have to google that one) you have to dumb it down for them so they can understand.

This wont work in court. Nice try though. TMZ are you kidding me? This arguement will last all of about 10 minutes in court, and yeah she will go down with a FELONY.

Lyndsay is a person who

*has never learned to accept responsibility for HER behavior
*wants to enjoy the benefits of living in the adult world, but who is unable and unwilling to accept the responsibilities that are a prerequisite for being part of the adult world.
*abdicates and denies responsibility for HER behavior and its consequences (abdication and denial are common features of Lyndsay)
*is unable and unwilling to recognize the effect of HER behavior on others
*does not want to know of any other way of behaving
*is unwilling to recognize that there could be better ways of behaving.

Exactly!!!
