Lindsay Lohan

Suspect

In Jewelry Heist

8/27/2012 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827-lindsay-lohan-tmz-1Lindsay Lohan is now formally a suspect in the theft of $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay was at the Hollywood Hills home of Sam Magid a week ago when Sam called the LAPD and reported a jewelry theft.   We're told Lindsay has been at the house frequently, including at an all-night house party a week ago Sunday.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Lindsay and her assistant Gavin Doyle are both suspects in the theft.

Now here's the twist ... We're told Sam has recanted his story and now says nothing was stolen.  But our sources say cops are not closing out the investigation because they believe they have independent witnesses who can finger Lindsay and Gavin as the thieves.

Sources tell us ... LAPD detectives contacted the lawyer for Lindsay and Gavin today, asking for an interview with the two suspects but the lawyer rejected the request.

It's unclear why Sam -- who is insanely wealthy -- suddenly changed his tune.

One final thing ... This is really bad news for Lindsay, because she's on probation for the theft case involving the necklace at a Venice jewelry store.  She could go to jail if she violates probation by stealing more jewelry.

This is it folks. This is the one. If TMZ is not full of sheet then she will be charged which is all it takes for her to get a year in county

How many stories have you run on this nowTMZ? you keep changing your story EVERY time. What happened to the 2 guys you said were the real suspects? now you say through "sources" the suspects are Lindsay and Gavin Doyle? TMZ if there were witnesses Lindsay and Gavin Doyle would be arrested, the cops would NOT ask to speak to their lawyers, do you think we are stupid?

Keep on milking this story for hits TMZ and keep on quoting your "sources" cause anyone with any sense knows its BS.

Please...she's not going to jail and the police will not arrest her. "She could go to jail if she violates probation"- if she were an ordinary citizen, yes.

Just the fact of her being a suspect. She already spent all the money she made for the stright to dvd Canyons. There is nothing stating she actually signed up for scary movie 5. Maybe after all this BS they are having second thoughts.

Why would Lindsay be charged if the 2 guys committed the crime? (unless they found the stolen goods in her possession)

Ok, so law enforcement tells them she's a suspect, and Michael tells them that the owner recanted the story. Who are we going to believe???

Is TMZ's source for the "recanting" idea still the always unreliable Michael Lohan? Recant is such an odd word to use that I assume the answer is yes. Sounds like something Michael would say and that is the word used by TMZ in the previous article which was obviously a Michael concoction. If the owner really had an oops moment, wouldn't expect that word. If the loot mysteriously was delivered to the front door in a plain brown envelope- not recanting. Rumors spread most likely by Michael about insurance fraud also make no sense if the guy is "insanely wealthy". The claim was for pocket change for the insanely wealthy.

Here's the deal, lets check the TMZ credability. If Lindsay is a real suspect and there are witnesses as TMZ suggests, she and/or Gavin Doyle will be questioned and arrested.

If TMZ and their "sources" are full of crap, nothing will happen.


Bets are on.
