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.

This broad always has that puzzled look on her face like she's "surprised" that it's wrong to steal.... I thought she was on the right track when she dumped that dude Sam....

I just hope she wouldn't be foolish enough to cover for this guy if he is the one who stole them.

Well it's not like they'll do anything to her. I say don't waste time with arresting her - just close the file and go away. Eventually people will stop inviting her to anything. That should do the trick.

help this young woman    

Linds smashed every plate, glass, and bowl
She could not find the diamonds she stole
It was vile to watch
They were found in her crotch
They’d been stashed there last week by NICOLE

She is such a friggin moron. Is anyone surprised? Isn't is just amazing how things tend to grow legs and up and disappear whenever Lohan is around. No big deal Gavin did it just like he was driving the car to cover her butt. Funny thing was she was seen driving the car in addition seen getting out of the passanger side after Gavin how does that work? Oh, that's right she climbed out of the passanger side.


Doesn't matter wheather she did it or not just the fact she's accused and now a suspect does nothing for her 'steller non-comback comeback.


Guess making a complete fool of herself crashing Fran Eastwoods private birthday party wasn't enough now this. Just one more place she won't be allowed back in. Keep up the good work Lohan. Jerk.
