Lindsay Lohan is accused of walking out of a jewelry store with some expensive merchandise, and it's pretty clear the troubled star is guilty of that act.
Whether a crime was committed or not is a different story, however.
The store may be hard pressed to prove she stole - and may have compromised prosecution by waiting to report the Lindsay Lohan necklace caper.
Lindsay Lohan needs to steal some new shorts next. Yikes.
The owner of Kamofie & Company claims Lindsay walked out with the $2,500 necklace on January 22, yet she did not inform the LAPD until the next day.
Sources say the owner claims she tried contacting Lindsay's associates on the 22nd to ask them to return the item, but weren't able to reach anyone.
The problem with the owner's case is that she knew exactly where it was, and could have just walked down the street and knocked at Lindsay's door.
Also, not even Lindsay Lohan is dumb enough to walk around being photographed with something she had just ripped off. Well, we think so anyway.
Lindsay's excuse is that the store gave it to her on loan.
