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.

Nicole, hurry up and run out to the store, you're going to need a new count down calendar. Grab a few years. You're going to need them

There is an old saying. Where there is smoke there may be a fire. This woman is constantly getting into these situations. Nobody can tell me that she is unlucky. She stays in sh**. The judge should have locked her up and treated her like every other screw up with a history of getting into trouble. A good year in jail and she will stop acting like a damned fool. Big Bertha will help her with that attitude thing.

When I was young I took something that wasn't mine. Now, every time someone has something they can't find everybody blames me - then after they find out I didn't there is never an apology. Granted, when a person does something like this once it is natural for people to wonder if he/she is guilty in the future. Past offenders have to expect this to some degree. However, it is still wrong to publicly convict someone without any evidence. It's just as easy to believe that someone took advantage of that opportunity to steal something and then point the finger at her. Let's wait for the facts, eh?

Yup    

I had this thing pegged from the start. I KNEW the reason she immediately split for New York was to put as much distance between herself & the scene of her crime, so as to make LAPD's job of investigating the crime & interviewing the witnesses as difficult as possible. She's gone from just being a stupid little arrogant whore to being a criminal who knows how to work the justice system. Time to stop treating her like a VIP hollywood celebrity & start treating her as the lying career criminal she wants to be...

I wonder how much money she still owes Shawn Holley..
there is no way she has paid her in full..
if she tried to get over on shawn like she does everyone else (lou taylor)...then there might be a problem there

SGT Joe Friday: Just the facts Maam(TMZ)
TMZ: A source told us that Lindsay is considered a suspect by the LAPD.
SGT: Who was this source? Maam the LAPD describes people as persons of interest. They never call them a suspect.
TMZ: The LAPD said that Lindsay is a suspect.
SGT: Who at the LAPD said this and why would they speak with your source? Who is the source?
TMZ: The source said they spoke with LAPD.
SGT: Maam, just the facts, who, what, where, when and how did you get this information?
TMZ: We will talk to the LAPD and publish a story soon that says she isn't a suspect.

Let's see now.....
.
According to the Lohan playbook, the "smearing the victim" phase of their defense should begin tomorrow or Wed at the latest.

Gonna be fun to see how they try to drag a Multi-millionaire throught the mud.

Ahhhh Agent John Orange Marvin Moron Smith as a spin exercise you get a D. Nowhere in this pile of drivel do address the issue. You shirt around it quite adeptly but deflect the actual point.
.
No one is questioning you can talk about Bruce B because you won't shut up about it.
.
We maintain you have been gagged (and you intimated to Maddie that she would be too for continuing to ask you about your lies) concerning your being the parent of the kids and directing the police to finding the body. You haven't said boo about either subject since being gagged.
.
Since you helped them find the body, logic would dictate that you be called to the witness stand. Whether trial by jury or trial by judge alone is irrelevant, the operative word is TRIAL.
.
You skirted around that one as well. Or do you want us to believe the judge is going to pronounce him guilty without looking at evidence?
.
as usual you're a chickenzhit, lying. piece of crap that can't or won't back up his bullzhit with anything remotely factual. Just more tall stories.

Vorbaby, I will answer the question about Beresford-Redman just to dispel the lies that the haters have put up about some BS gag order. Bruce is on trial in Mexico for murdering his wife and they will not call any witnesses from the US to testify. There isn't any jury in Mexico and his fate will be determined by a judge. I think that he will be sentenced to twenty years in jail and most likely will not serve the full sentence due to extenuating cir***stances. Bye Bye Brucie boy, hasta la vista. Please feel free to contact Monica's sisters or Brucie boys parents.....

She is literally and figuratively the gift that keeps on giving! I took a break from my court prep for tomorrow am and this is what I've found for my entertainment pleasure. And speaking of attorneys---Shawn is THE reason that LL is not in the pokey. As others have noted, that makes Gavin quite a wild card.

Don't you just love how Nicole has already decided the outcome of the case without any evidence?
.
Must be the same judge Agent Munchie is using in Mexico.
