Lindsay Lohan, the 24-year-old actress, has been accused of stealing a $2500 necklace from a store in Venice, California. The Los Angeles Police Department has handed the case over to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. They have obtained a search warrant for her house.

When they got it, a friend of Lohan’s brought the necklace to the Pacific Division police station.  Los Angeles Times was told that a surveillance camera showed Lohan wearing the necklace.
However, she claims she “borrowed” it and her stylist forgot to return it. According to ABC New, this is not the first time she has been linked to missing jewelry. In 2009, Lindsay Lohan was in England when $400,000 worth of jewelry went missing from the set of Elle magazine. They say, “Elle has no reason to believe that Lindsay Lohan was in any way responsible.”
Dezire Diaz, a Penn Manor freshman says that Lindsay Lohan probably didn’t steal the necklace, “She has better things to worry about”
