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%!!!


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.

It's not unusual for a small specialty store to mark stuff up 200-300%+. DUH. Crooks don't get to claim wholesale value!

Bash I saw your new photo about an hour ago

Is that your momma getting readty to take your temperature ??


I think your comments were censored because the content of silly yet,seemingly combative and confrontational exchanges with @the rock and the outlandish stories you made up when we were all joking around and goofing off one night role playing.

I don't think the individual profile page has a hide screen or block postings option ...

I think you are a straight shooting kinda guy.
Unwaivering in your withering and scathing comments.
Spelling errors aside they are laugh out loud funny at times

TMZ probably was covering their own butts after MiLO thretened to file charges of libel, slander and maybe even so called (terrorist threats).

I find it more than peculiar @the rocks comments 10 thousands of them vanished days before our complete blogging history were cached for reference / data mining..

Micheal has been talking about writing a book about "haters" and his little miss being slandered libeled and emotionally damaged from the vitriolic speech online bloggers..
We all now his history and inaccurate reporting of the facts and details of the matter(Sound about right ?)

It just speaks to the level of denial that people are in who think that Lielo is innocent...

She has a history of lying and having sticky fingers!!

I am sure TMZ only put this up because it's Friday,(Lindsay aint got no job) and this will enrage readers all weekend long.

I've sat here the last little while, clearly amazed that TMZ would print this piece of garbage again. But I think it goes deeper than that. All they do is give the prosecuter and judge a heads up. Maybe that is their intent. Regardless, this will last ten minutes before the judge looses her cool. Stupidity.

Anyone else wonder if the Lohan clan will try to bribe the jury pool when Lilo's trial rolls around??

The judge should sequester the jury!

The point I was making is that reputable sites are also reporting on Lindsay, it's not just Gossip sites as you claim. And they don't think very highly of her, either.

No one is going to look up to Lindsay (except you, Nicole and Bash, that is) until she turns herself around, and starts acting responsibly.

She had the perfect chance coming out of rehab... and instead is videotaped taking a necklace without do***entation(dumb on her part, even if it was a loan, considering she was on probation), out at clubs nightly, and falling down on the sidwalk in the middle of the night.

You know that if Lindsay is sent to jail she will actually be serving the likely 6 month probation violation sentence right ?

She won't be remanded without bail she will be sentenced to 6 months and do 24 days max and be free until the trial.
Also Lindsay gets put in solitary confinement so she will just be serving the time and won't be on work release or anything.

So what, she's in there for 24 days because of overcrowding. Although she's used to Lynwood, we still know how well she handles jail. Hot mess. Last time she cried like a baby to the point that upset the other inmates. She can't be alone, and did get perf. treatment by being allowed to keep those god awful hair extensions in. She gets out and still is facing a jury and a PRISON sentence. LIndsay won't be able to handle the stress awaiting trial either. Go right back to abusing prescription drugs and alcohol to numb her mental pain. I do know she is put in Ad Seg as well but I do not understand how overcrowding applies there. Is there a line of people waiting to serve time in solitary? Also, what happened to her quitting smoking and saying on the Extra interview that she was tired of the club scene? Total BS again on her part, and that's just one example. I don't buy the argument that she's in her 20's and just having fun b/c that is what that age group does. She's in her mid 20's now and most people that age have a job and finished college. No Robert Downey Jr comeback either. He acutally wanted to clean up his act. Regardless of this trial, her reuptation is so shot right now that she's done as a serious actor. She wants Oliver Stone to use her. Please. She wants back right now to do films and it's just not gonna happen. Only if and when she becomes serious about getting help finally. Meyers is gonna tear her a new one.

OMG! Are we back to this again? *groan* Of course the necklace was hicked up in price. It's Venice, idiot. Besides, where in the law does it say you're only charged with a crime depending on what something you stole ought to cost? They can put any price they want on an item and if people will buy it at that (or steal it), then that's what it costs, isn't it?

Whatever price she was quoted for the necklace was the value of the necklace. Everything in retail is marked up, that's how the store makes a profit. She's guilty of felony grand theft.

Let's see, the store changed its version 2 times.
He sold the video thus losing credibility.
And the necklace costs U.S. $ 850.00 ...
Kamofie is ridiculous
