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.

OK. Ten years (3-4 actual) State Prison - no house arrest, 20 more years formal probation - face-to-face reporting once a week. Twice-weekly drug testing. Weekly psychiatric counseling. 180-day inpatient substance treatment - no visitors or phone calls (mail only), no cell phone or Internet. Designer SCRAM for 10 years. No travel out of Los Angeles without written permission from the JUDGE - IN ADVANCE. Surrender passport.

AA meetings - 5 per week. NA meetings - 5 per week. CA meetings - 5 per week. GA (Grifters Anonymous) meetings - 5 per week. Previously community service continued - 10 years of daily anti-shoplifting classes. Five 8-hr days per week. Any missed or late days will result in an additional 5 days. All civil litigation must be adjudicated and all legal fees must be paid in full before probation is completed. Failure to settle ALL lawsuits on time will result in an additional 3 years of aforementioned conditions. Defendant to cover ALL associated costs of probation conditions - to include probation visits, psychologists, drug testing, SCRAM anklet, substance treatment costs, and a $500,000.00 fine. Any violation of these terms shall result in the probation - and all it’s conditions - to be revoked and begin again.

If the D.A., the D.E.A., the F.B.I., the C.D.C., and the city Attorney offers this, I think Linds should jump on it. Seems like a fair bargain. Your thoughts, NICOLE?

Well, what the hell did you expect?
She's gotten away with everything. She knows there will never be consequences for her actions.
She's been trained by the justice system.

So can we all agree now that Donata (Dina) Sullivan Lohan and Michael Lohan are both Travelers Irish - or as they're know in Gaelic, an lucht siúil. I think that it's fairly obvious that their daughter Lindsay has learned all the grifter skills of this gypsy-like clan along with their penchant for drinking themselves to an early grave.

I wonder who Sam Magid is. That's an awful way to treat some one who was nice enough to have you over and you would rob from him.What a good friend(if it's true) and it makes her look really white trashy.
Grow up Lindsey.

And besides isn't she making money with these latest film roles?

She needs jail and to be on the women's chain gang. Washing cop cars, mowing lawns, and picking up trash on the side of the roads. Maybe she'll get lucky and find a discarded vodka bottle in a ditch like what was next to her Porsche.

This young woman has had so many wonderful things handed to her. She has responded to that by spitting in so many people's eyes. Now perhaps finally she will get what is due her. Hopefully her very skilled attorney will not be able to pull the wool over a judge's or a jury's eyes. After she is convicted of grand theft she will get the sentence of several years that she, as a repeat offender, deserves. After she gets out of prison she can go live the trailer park life that she is SO desperate to live.
