Glimmer of Hope: Jewelry Store Surveillance Tape Backs Up Lindsay Lohan Story

by at . Comments

Who knows if it will persuade the D.A., but a surveillance video at least partially backs up Lindsay Lohan's account of her infamous, alleged jewel thievery.

The accused felon was in no hurry to bolt Kamofie & Company the day she allegedly ganked the thing, blabbing with the owner for a bit before peacing out.

According to sources who have watched the tape, Lohan wore the $2,500 necklace she's accused of stealing almost the entire time she was in the store.

Video clearly shows Lindsay trying on the necklace, checking herself out in the mirror, and appearing to ask her friend and the owner for their opinion.

There is no audio on the tape. Reports say Lindsay took off her own necklace to try on the store's necklace, which she never took off in 45 minutes.

According to sources, before walking out of the store, Lindsay put her own necklace back on, but not in a way that obstructed the store's necklace.

Even better for the train wreck, with the store's necklace still in plain view, Lindsay is seen talking to the owner for a couple of minutes before leaving.

Doesn't sound like the actions of someone that tried to steal a necklace, right? Or is she just that calculating to make it look like a misunderstanding?

In rejecting a plea bargain last week, Lindsay indicated confidence that she will be vindicated by the legal system. Perhaps this is a big reason why.

Of course, a probation violation could land her in jail regardless. This is what happens when you're a total mess and constantly run afoul of the law.

What do you think of her story in light of this report?


It's not so difficult to believe that this girl, who has stolen before-- at least one Rolex and at least one $12,000 mink coat--has stolen again. She's a klepto, it would seem. If she's done it before, she'll do it again. Think about it. Sheesh, people.


the owner is more weird then the lindsay girl. he jus let her walk out like that without not stoppin her or remindin her about the necklace. seriously. sounds dodgy man


But is this tape not the same one the DA had the whole time and said backed their case? I still think she stole it. Taking something that does not belong to you without paying=stealing. If it turns out she did not and the store is scamming I'll be the first t apologise tho.


So what, I don't see how this lets her off the hook. She had the necklace on how long? It was her responsibility, if she's that flakey, to return the necklace back to the owner. The media is explaining away her bad behavior and it's getting old. She's old enough to take care of certain matters herself. Time to grow up and save the bs excuses to Sheen. And who needs to go to jewelry stores everyday, try going to some acting classes with a good teacher instead.


She didn't pay for it. She stole it. She just distracted the owner.


With this information now, I don't know. Why didn't the owner just ask for the dang thing back?


You think there may be a possibility that the theft charge might be dropped entirely? Will that reinstate her probation so she can one day rid herself of the whole mess? You know probation is no fun ... I've been there.


Cute doesn't tell us a whole lot ... just a still picture.
