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.

Don't worry Lindsey, between that enabling attorney of yours and those clowns for judges in the California Celebrity Courts... you'll walk away AGAIN without a scratch.

All jokes aside if this is true, and by the way things are unfolding it seems they are; What is this woman's problem?

Seriously she has been in a butt load of trouble in the past (lest say) 5 years; her career, what it may be, is making a somewhat comeback. At least she is earning a living. Now show goes and does this. She really needs professional help. and now

"She could go to jail if she violates probation by stealing more jewelry." --> Yah, right. We all know what happened the last few times she committed offenses. Worst case? Confined to her luxury apartment where she can party and shoot commercials? Probable outcome? Check in and out of jail in less than an hour. Such is the LA county justice system.
