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.

Clue #1 This story is a Lohan plant? Richard Whackjob is all over it. Expect Crazy Susan,Jill666, Massengill, and Darkape to join in. When you get any or all of these spin doctors in on the act- it's Lohan action.
.
Plus there's Instamember action as well.

Truth    

OF COURSE THE BITCH IS GUILTY... LESLO RECEIVED THE GOODS IN A DARKENED BACK ALLEY. ONCE THE BITCH REALIZED SHE'S GONNA HIT THE CALIFORNIA 3 STRIKE RULE SHE QUICKLY PLACED THE FELONY GOODS IN A SHOE BOX AND COURIERED IT BACK TO THE OWNERS HOME WITH A SORRY ASS NOTE. THAT AND A FEW GRAND FOR HIS INCONVENIENCE. TYPICAL LESLO... #TRUTH!!

Another payoff. She's such a class act. I can't wait for her ultimate demise. It's going to be a real brutal comeuppance, and I will love every second of it. =)

If TMZ is "told" this only by Michael Lohan, there is no reason to believe it. More likely the police are still looking for the two guys Lindsay brought that the owner originally suspected. It is just a very unlikely story that someone would keep all their overnight guests at the house until police arrived and file a police report for theft of expensive items, letting police question all the guests and look through the house, and then a week later say oops, nothing was stolen. Even if offered a lot of money to "recant", there is the risk of being charged for filing a false police report. Unless perhaps à threat was made that was more of a risk.

You know, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Michael Lohan is the kinda guy that "knows a guy", if you know what I'm sayin'. He's been in jail plenty. I'm sure he knows more than just a few guys. Because what can you do to manipulate a guy that doesn't need your cash bribe?

Exactly.

Sociopaths are Sad    

"Person of interest" is the precursor to "suspect". Just like HIV is the precursor to AIDS. Which Lindsay probably has as well.

Don't kid yourself. TMZ didn't "imply" anything.

Lindsay needs to make money somehow. She's not working as an actress anymore. She was raised by grifters ... she IS a grifter at the heart of it all.

The cops didn't say the homeowner recanted, the liar's lying sack of crap father did.

For those less familiar with Michael- he has a long history of making up stories to protect Lindsay. For example, he grabbed the microphone in front of a flock of reporters outside one of her hearings and claimed the jewelers falsely accused Lindsay of theft to get publicity. It was ridiculous but that's the kind of story he tries to spread. Have you ever known a merchant who thought revealing how easy it was to shoplift expensive items would be dandy publicity? Or who would think falsely accusing a celebrity would be a great way to bring in customers? But even after she was convicted, the stupid idea still surfaces that the lass was framed by the jewelers. It came entirely from Michael with no basis in fact. That's why it is so likely that all this is just another Michael Lohan distraction spun from whole cloth, with no truth to it.
