Lindsay Lohan

Burglary 'Person of Interest'

But It May Be Case Closed

EXCLUSIVE

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.

TMZ Staff - When writing a number under ten, you spell out the whole number. So, it should be "Lindsay let two friends into...' and "where two watches.." It takes so little work to make that correct.

I am so sorry to be a grammar nazi here, and am against jumping on simple typos or posters in the comment section. But, these like of mistakes make TMZ look really amateurish. Also, I noticed this same mistake on the last Lindsay story on this. You're allegedly writers. Please write gooder! ;-)

Feel free to "hate" me, folks. I hate myself for putting time into this post!
Again, I don't jump on commenters, but I hold TMZ to a higher standard (maybe that's a mistake..)

maybe the whole TMZ story is BS LOL. I kinda hope it is. Let the police complete their investigation and the result will be Lindsay had nothing to do with this, thats the best outcome. But you know TMZ guys, if they can belittle Lindsay Lohan with BS they will.

@ Where are all the real celebrities.


Yeah Lindsay has been stupid in the past and it was her fault but this case is just plain dumb. If anything goes down and Lindsay is within a mile she gets the blame, TMZ will see to that. The police said officially Lindsay Lohan was not a suspect (LAPD Officer Herrias) but TMZ want to put it into your heads she is a suspect with their fake sources. Their story above is comparable to a kids comic.

My guess is that the items were returned, or it is possible they were misplaced by the owner. I don't know why they are bringing up MiLO, very strange.

I agree with those that think the guy was paid off--big time--or is afraid of something. Lindsay is going to get hers someday--I guess just not this time. As for Michael Lohan speaking for Lindsay--too funny. I will say both Lindsay and her father have their denials down to a science.

@Lucy


The homeowner is a multimillionaire so being paid off isn't an option. How about the guy made a genuine mistake? he found the alleged missing items and told the cops right away. Unfortunately TMZ hate Lindsay, they have to put the boot in.

Likely stuff was returned and the homeowner doesn't want to be dragged through the mud with Lindsay Lohan's name attached like her other victims have been.

Michael Lohan is pathetic if he thinks speaking out makes Lindsay look better. She's on the Z-list with him, now.

I think the goods were returned along with payola to shutdown LAPD's investigation. Lindsay has too many s***bags at her disposal to help her out while on probation so in essence she can do whatever she wants in L.A. County and never pay the consequences. Trick is gonna skate again. I also with some enabler could name ONE, just one redeeming quality about Lindsay. Tell me just one.

Michael Lohan tells TMZ, "After personally speaking with the homeowner, and offering him his choice of either a check for $100k or an ass-beating, the home owner recanted his story and offered to tell the police nothing happened. Was all his imagination, heck he's not even sure Klepto Blohan was even there!"

So I guess Mommy called him and offered more money to let her kid off the hook? What a waste of air.

First of all, bitch needs to look in a mirror.
I can only see bad times ahead for this girl.
The sad thing is that she thinks that she is trying to reclaim that old Hollwood Glamour.
Her Parents need to be held accountable for the sad demise of this girl.

I'll agree with the H8turds on one thing, Michael Lohan is a d-bag. He involves himself when no one needs his involvement, he wants his name everywhere. None of his kids want anything to do with him, its embarrassing for him when he forces himself upon his kids.

With in five years she will be doing porn, stripping, or very hgh end prostituting. Because nobody will take her serious as an actor. The risk is to high and only bad low budget movie directors will hire her as a D list actor. Lindsey take good care of all your stuff, for the future garage sales that you will have.

Yup    

Simply put, slut-han's mommy "white oprah" paid off the homeowner so the bitch wouldn't get dragged into another criminal investigation. Nobody files a police report, then recants with an idiotic claim of "nothing was stolen" unless they're compensated.

This bitch is a thief; she's a complete klepto. If anyone invites her to their home, or lets her in if she shows up unannounced, they deserve the theft of their items. 'Cause slut-han is there to steal your sh*t...
