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.

Hey TMZ, this wasn't a HEIST, when there were a bunch of people in the house when it went missing. This is flat out theft. I find this worse than breaking into a home when no one is around, hence the HEIST doesn't work. Heist is knocking over a closed bank, knocking over a closed diamond distributer, knocking over an unoccupied HOUSE. The burglar bunch were HEIST THIEVES because no one was around, this was just flat out a robbery.

This just in from some "sources" - A new craze has taken the planet by storm! Everybody's doing it - from continent to continent. Place your bet: Which Lindsay Lohan rerun will be the last to air before her State stretch? “Mean Girls“? “The Clamyons“? “Skank 2: The Whoring“? “612SEX”? “6T Nyne”? Closest guess wins "close to" one million dollars. From someone.

Lindsööööy... i give up on you, we're done! I really don't know why i had the feeling you deserve the support, but you obviously don't!
I'm a very nice person but i can't help it.. i wish you a very nice time in jail, you deserve it. I hope you don't get away that easy... as you did how many times?
I have a brother, he did a lot of stupid thing... pretty much like her and he made it, he's doing fine now and he's 21!!!
She will never learn it, the drugs destroyed everything! Throw her in jail or in a padded room. She will kill herself sooner or later.

If she is guilty, lock her up like you would any other common thief. Why does she get off so light? Hollywood justice. The next judge who does it should be locked up with her or thrown off the bench.

She will be exonerated and it will be even more LA taxpayers money and resources wasted.

Hmmmm, a hundred grand worth of goodies? How will Holley get that down to a misdemeanor? Linz better get out the kneepads and start working her way up under Judge Sautner's robes right now. Or will we get a REAL judge who is not starstruck and looking for a celebrity "project"? How stupid has Linz made HER look?

Odds are that she stole the stuff but they probably won't get her. Of course I never thought they'd get OJ and they didn't, for murder. The problem with people like Lindsay and OJ is that they continually get away with things so they assume they can do what they want and break the law at will. Maybe it'll catch up with her someday but I'm not so sure.

Of course Linds has been at the house frequently.... they call that "casing the joint", or at least they used to. By the way..... isn't it odd that Linds AND GayVin have the same lawyer speaking for them, and it ain't LaShawn?
