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.

You're not sure why Sam Magid would change his mind? Isn't Lindsay still on probation? Wouldn't she be willing to pay, one way or another, to keep herself out of jail, or maybe even one of the productions companies that she is doing a movie with?

If charges are brought by the DA she must take this to trial. 270 days is nothing for being charged.
Hopefully they realize this case is pointless.

The cops don't have two independent anything, because if they did Lindsay would be in custody. All the cops have is what we call in the law as "hearsay".

Do you know what is REALLY scary? She has only been accused a few times. How many times has she been successful at theft that we don't know about? I heard for every one time caught, there are 25 times a perp is not caught.
