Lindsay Lohan

Burglary 'Person of Interest'

But It May Be Case Closed

Lindsay Lohan
is more than just a witness to an alleged burglary that went down in the Hollywood Hills last Sunday ... law enforcement sources tell us she is a "person of interest," but the case may now be over.

Law enforcement sources tell us they are not ready to call Lindsay a suspect, but they are suspicious of her actions at a house party where 2 watches and an expensive pair of sunglasses -- total value $100,000 -- supposedly went missing. We're told Lindsay let 2 friends into the house and cops think when they left they took the goods ... and she may have been in on it.

But now there's a twist in Lindsay's favor. We're told the owner of the house has recanted his story and written a letter to cops saying nothing was stolen. Of course, it flies in the face of his actions Sunday night when he called the cops and made the theft report.  

Michael Lohan tells TMZ, "After personally speaking with the homeowner, there was NOTHING stolen from his home. Lindsay has no involvement and the owner has told the cops that."

We're told as of now the matter is still under investigation, but if the "victim" recants, it's unlikely the case will proceed.

The guy was either paid off, threatened or the merch was returned. No doubt she was involved though.

TMZ you're really doing your best to smear Lindsay Lohan on this. Lindsay didn't "let" anyone in, they came with her and the owner let them all in. The cops have said she is not a suspect and nothing has changed.The wording of YOUR story is disgraceful, Lindsay Lohan is the scapegoat.


The guy who owns this house is a millionaire who probably has more money than Lindsay so pay off suggestions are stupid.


WITCH HUNT!

The LAPD have NOT said Lindsay was a suspect, read the story peoperly. Everyone is a person of interest, including the owner and thats because they were all there.


This is just TMZ doing what they usually do, putting their usual spin on it, with Lindsay being the fall guy.


Read the story, the cops have NOT named Lindsay as a suspect

Seriously Lindsay is out of control. Even hanging out with people stealing things is bad enough. She needs to grow up

Ya know...if she'd just stay home and not be out at clubs or parties all the time, maybe the public wouldn't have such a bad perception of her. But she can't seem to do that.

I think what is worse than these charges is that she had Cody with her at an all night party.

I love how Michael got involved though. If she was so innocent, why would Micheal be calling the owner in the first place? Lindsay is 26 and can talk to the owner herself!

Hmmm...after re-reading this story. It doesn't name the person who said a letter was written to the police. That didn't come from the police themselves. In fact, I have a feeling the person who told them a letter was written was Michael himself.

I'd have to say that this is probably BS also, and the investigation is still on.
