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.

Here we go again!

Was she born only to give cops, courts and the legal profession a career?

I thought I had seen STUPIDITY at its finest, but Lindsay really takes the cake. Does she have a JAIL wish or what? Maybe being in jail for 1 year (with no letting out for overcrowding) is what she needs.

She's addicted to stealing along with drugs and alcohol. What next?

I doubt she will pull a "Robert Downey" recovery if she continues this route.

It's unlikely that Sam was paid to keep quiet, more than likely Michael threatened him in some way, which is something Michael has apparently done to other people. A very reliable source told me that the missing items were returned shortly after the conversation Michael had with Sam. Even if it was returned, it was still stolen, so that doesn't mean whomever is responsible shouldn't be prosecuted. The people who are saying Sam made it up, that's highly unlikely. He would have nothing to gain by doing so and could face prosecution for filing a false police report. Someone in his position would never do a thing like that.

Sick of hearing Lindsay could go to jail. She will not go to jail no matter the outcome. She never does what she is suppose to then it's oh Lindsay can go to jail which in Cali is all of 10 minutes. Keep the updates just stop the nonsense about this bitch doing jail time.

Well - if you want to steal something from an insanely wealthy man, what better time to do it than when Lindsay Lohan is in the house? You know LA law enforcement will be after her like dogs in heat, and forget everything and everyone else!

LL has turned her life around, endured everything the judge threw at her, and started working again. Give her a break.

That's easy. Because Lohan paid him off. But it looks like that was a waste of money.

PLEASE lock this B up before she self-destructs. Perhaps a year or so behind bars will set her straight - maybe.

Lindsay is just misunderstood. Can't you see? These baubles that she wants are things she deserves! She should not have to pay for them, she should not have to ask, Daddy should not have to buy them for her. Just taking things eliminates that messy conversation 'but those things do not belong to you Lindsay', and 'what! do you think the world owes you a free ride.'

I don't understand why the courts are hassling Lindsay. Sitting around boring court rooms cuts into her quality clubbing and clepto time. Geez!

This morning on Fox local news they are reporting that the police in two cities are after Lilo for questioning on the heist and for purgery on the car crash case on PCH.
Ketjo was right! Run lilo run...you'd best not ever come back to LA. You've worn out your welcome here.

Beautiful and full of problems this girl. I can not endenter because these people have so many problems. Now how annoyed IN SF said in her comment below. If it was a poor black person was already ... Here in Brazil things are too well. Rico is always right and the law is no law for this type of person.
