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.

It's funny how Lindz always winds up on the other side of the country the day after stuff goes missing.

Celebrity status has it's perks and benefits. Regular folks would have been given more time/fine stuff. It concerns me about blaming the son of Suge Knight a violent felon/rap mogul/DB. She better do a movie so she can hire protection. Maybe a "life-coach" too. Seems like she's cut a lot of breaks.

Please explain to me why this wealthy girl with a somewhat (mediocre) successful career needs to steal anything? Like Winona Ryder, is it yet another cry for attention? Is she not getting enough TMZ talk lately? Absolutely ridiculous if this is true; she needs real jail time, not a cake walk through the morgue, to get the message.

My patience has finally run out with her. I have given her the benefit of the doubt for having horrible parents but it's on her at this point. Be gone!
