Uh Ohh, Lindsay Lohan is in a little hot water. She is accused of stealing a $2500 Necklace from a store in Venice and her friend surrended the jewelry to the police!! Lindsay claims the necklace is borrowed…who is tellingÂ theÂ truth?
A friend of Lindsay Lohan has turned in a piece of stolen jewelry to police detectives in Los Angeles, RadarOnline.com has learned.
RadarOnline.com broke the world exclusive story late Tuesday that police requested a search warrant after suspecting Lindsay had stolen the one-of-a-kind necklace worth $2,500 from a store in Venice Beach, where she now lives following her release from rehab.
The unnamed friend surrendered the jewelry to authorities in the Pacific Division of the LAPD Tuesday night.
LAPD Pacfic Division Lt. Jeff Bert tells RadarOnline: “A person claiming to represent Lindsay Lohan turned the necklace into LAPD dectectives at 8:30pm Tuesday night. LAPD began investigating Lohan on January 23rd. The necklace was reportedly stolen from a Venice boutique. If the LA County DA’s office files charges it would be grand theft, which is a felony.”
Police tell RadarOnline.com the necklace is now in a police locker — classified as evidence. It will ultimately be up to the District Attorney’s office whether to pursue any charges in the case.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, on February 1, police went to court seeking a search warrant for Lohan’s Venice Beach home because they suspected the Mean Girls star, 24, swiped a high end piece of jewelry from a store in Venice Beach on January 22.
But according to TMZ, Lindsay claims the necklace was borrowed by Â her stylist and the stylist forgot to bring it back…
Lindsay Lohan claims she did not steal the necklace at the center of a criminal investigation … rather, she claims it was loaned to her and a stylist simply forgot to return it on time … TMZ has learned.
Sources closely connected with Lindsay tell TMZ … Lindsay was in the jewelry store in Venice, CA on January 22 and claims the necklace was loaned to her.
Lindsay claims she gave it back to a stylist at some point thereafter but the stylist neglected to return it on time.
Lindsay says her stylist is the one who returned it to the LAPD last night.
Lindsay says, according to sources, “I didn’t have any part in the non-returning on time.”
Could be true…do you believe Lindsay?
