Lindsay Lohan to Be Charged With Felony Grand Theft
TMZ reports that Lohan will be charged with felony grand theft for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice, California, jewelry store on January 22. Surveillance footage from the store reportedly shows Lohan trying on the necklace, which she appeared to be wearing in photographs a week later.
After the store owner filed a claim last week, police searched Lohan’s home for the necklace but came up empty, as it had been returned by the time they arrived.
Sources say that the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office could file charges as early as Monday. If convicted, Lohan—who is currently still on probation stemming from a DUI arrest—could receive up to three years in state prison.
Sources close to the 24-year-old actress, who maintains that the necklace was on loan to her from the store, say she plans to fight the charges.
