Lindsay Lohan has escaped again. She will NOT be prosecuted for her alleged role in the theft of more than $100,000 in watches and sunglasses this month.
According to the D.A.'s office, there is insufficient evidence to bring a burglary charge against the star, despite Lohan being the prime suspect in the caper.
One key component: The D.A. feels Lindsay and Sam Magid, who owns the house that was allegedly burglarized, have had a "longstanding relationship."
Sam also did not identify the actress as a suspect and other witnesses "have refused to become involved." Also, no suspects were found with stolen property.
Lindsay's assistant Gavin Doyle, who was also considered a suspect in the theft occurring a week ago Sunday, will not face prosecution either, TMZ reports.
"The District Attorney's Office received no evidence that any jewelry, including watches, was taken," according to a statement released by the office.
"The evidence presented to us was valued at $6,400 and included $3,000 in cash, four pairs of sunglasses, an iPod and keys to two cars and a house."
The key here is that the initial theft complaint, which included $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses, never made its way to the D.A.'s office.
Most likely this is due to the fact that Sam was not ready to go to war against LiLo, who fingered Andrew Knight (son of Suge) for the pilfering.
