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.

What she really needs unfortunately will never happen.
1) be in a long-term rehab where she can't get out for at least a year
2) then live far away from Hollywood and the peeps she hangs with...she's in a pattern that won't stop
She acts and looks like a hard core drug addict that will probably die soon from years of what this is doing to her physically. Her heart can't take much more and it shows.
very sad to watch

Truth    

Let's not forget how Lindsay controls the legal system in California. She ALWAYS gets off and the legal system is always eating out of her hands. Just another day in Paradise folks. Time to focus on something else. No chance anything will become of this.

Nothing ever happens to this bitch. She never faces any consequences ever....and she won't with this. No wonder she feels so entitled and invincible.

If she's guilty, lock her up and throw away the key. She has wasted every chance for rehabilitation she's ever been given, she continues to surround herself with enablers and other trashy people, and she still thinks she's an untouchable "movie star".

If she's innocent, well... Give her another couple months.

Proof that LAPD has a hard-on for Lindsay....Going to start selling shirts that say "Leave Lindsay Alone" on them....The guy went back and looked, nothing was missing. He was mistaken....closed case, the police can't prove anything if nothing is missing

This makes no sense at all. If Sam Magid doesn't want to bring charges then the LAPD has nothing.


The LAPD saying they have independent witnesses is laughable at best.
