Lindsay Lohan

Blaming Jewelry Theft

On Suge Knight's 'Son'

8/28/2012 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_tmz_lindsay_lohan_andrew_knightLindsay Lohan claims she's been framed in the theft of $100,000 of watches and sunglasses, telling friends the real culprit is a man claiming to be Suge Knight's son.  Problem is ... cops aren't buying what she's selling.

We broke the story ... Lindsay is now officially a suspect in the theft, which occurred at the lavish home of Sam Magid, a good friend of LiLo's.

Magid told cops Monday ... he was in touch with 2 of Lindsay's friends -- one of whom is Andrew Knight -- and they said the night of the theft Lindsay had handed them a bag with 2 or 3 pieces of the stolen items wrapped in her t-shirt. The 2 men returned the items to Magid. Other items were still missing.

Magid also said he was in touch with Lindsay, who told him she had hidden some of the other items around the house because she was afraid they would be stolen by burglars. We're told Magid told cops Lindsay confessed she was on Ambien at the time she hid the jewelry and was hazy about exactly what happened.

Now Lindsay claims Knight is the real culprit, something Knight strongly denies. And apparently cops buy his story, because Lindsay is the target of the investigation.

Magid told cops Lindsay contacted him recently and said, "I'm sorry. Please pray for me."

We're told yesterday Magid gave cops Ziploc bags containing some of the stolen items. In addition to the watches and sunglasses, we're told Tiffany monogrammed silverware was also taken.

This would make a great South Park episode with the SP cops: Sgt. Harrison Yates: To hell with you! I'm never gonna frame an innocent man again unless I know he's black for sure!

Los Angeles police are expected to present a watch theft case involving actress Lindsay Lohan to prosecutors on Tuesday to determine whether there is enough evidence to file criminal charges, law enforcement sources said.

LAPD detectives are seeking to talk with Lohan after several watches were reported stolen from a home earlier this month, the sources said. It's unclear what role Lohan may have played in the case. The alleged theft occurred at the home of one of Lohan's friends.

The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing, said the owner of the watches is not cooperating with investigators, making the inquiry more difficult.

The incident comes as Lohan is trying to put her much-chronicled legal troubles behind her and resume her acting career.

She was on probation for a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Since then she has also been convicted of shoplifting and was on probation for that offense as well.

Lohan was sent to jail several times for violating the terms of her probation. But she hewed to a strict regimen of counseling and community service at the county morgue. In March, a judge ended her probation in the DUI case and reduced the shoplifting probation to unsupervised status.

all about the money    

I gave Lilo the benefit of the doubt the last couple times she got in trouble figuring it was a typical Hollywood witch hunt. But now...she knows she is under the microscope yet still does stupid things instead of getting control of her life and going under the radar for a while. Now these new theft allegations its almost like she has some mental issue that she can't control...maybe shes a klepto or maybe she just feels entitled. Either way she just hasn't figured out how to stop screwing up and staying in the limelight when she needs to just honker down and lay low for more than a couple weeks (probably a few years).

Why is it LiLo is always present when something goes missing? Just because a person has money, doesn't mean they don't steal. This girl has a serious problem and she needs help! She is always blaming someone else, and I mean ALWAYS!

Linds will have a hard time explaining away her paw prints on the items. I can guarantee you the DA/Forensic team will go over them with a fine tooth comb, if they want to put her in a jam. It rests with what the DA wants to do to her.
I hope she never laughed at them from her previous case(s)? #LOL

Lindsay Lohan makes the LAPD and the LA DA's office look like incompetent fools. She's been in how many shady situations now? And they can't get a decent conviction? Makes you wonder how many bigger crimes and criminals the LAPD and LA DA let loose. What a bunch of amateurs. Try that **** in New York, Lindsay!

I was in Lindsay's corner for a long time, but I am done defending this sleazy little thieving ho-bag. It is time for her to spend some serious time behind bars.

SoWhat    

Lindsay's always blaming someone else for what she does. I didn't steal that, I wasn't driving that car, I wasn't drunk, I wasn't doing drugs, blah blah blah. It's really getting old and it's about time she gets thrown in jail for a decade or two, maybe if it's a long sentence like that then she'll at least spend a couple well deserved years in jail before she's released for "overcrowding".
