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.

Self-sabotaging cooze! LOVE IT!!! I LOVE how she feels so ENTITLED to everyone's jewelry and furs instead of EARNING them! Remember when she was in St. Tropez and sent out a public plea for a private jet to take her home/?!!! Plus, she looks like a 50 year old beat-up porn star. Besides, what kind of Z-list-star-phucker invites her anywhere? She's probbly his connection! Was Amanda Bynes at the party, too?! tee hee

People are acting all shocked on here. lol. It's LILO people. These stories have been reduced to an eye roll with me. Let's get real: With the alleged victim recanting, lack of evidence/witnesses and a brilliant lawyer, why are we even playing theoretics she will go to jail? She won't.

Well Sam hasn't jumped in stating he made a mistake, the police would have put out a statement that the story is untrue. So far that hasen't happened.


Holley and Honig haven't jumped in in her defence, just that she won't answer questions. Why not what does she have to hide? Alot. No. she answered questions just like everyone else who was there and beelines to NY.


True or not just doesn't look good at all.

Why waste tax payer money on an investigation? If she is guilty, she'll only spend about 20 minutes in jail anyway.

No her fans need more movies and music.

More LA police/TMZ nonsense. If the owner of the goods drops the case, so should law enforcement. Maybe the things were not stolen, or maybe Sam now knows someone else took them but won't name them, or maybe he honestly does not suspect Lindsay. But they can't resist the smell of blood in the water, can they?


I am sick and tired of this constant Lindsay Lohan-bashing. Leave her alone. Like I said before: She should leave LA for good. And the lynch mob at TMZ is still disgusting. Go bawl out your boss or who ever you are really mad at. Silly people.

I'm confused about Gavin. He went from photog to "boyfriend" to assistant/drug connection? Because he has a mug shot online.

And this is him. I checked his photo against some of his other online pictures with his "boss".

A person on probation is not supposed to hang around with felons, right lindsay? (wagging finga)

Don't know why, but this site is breaking up the address with dots........that make the link unusable. If you want to see the mug, just erase the dots. Grumble grumble.
