Lindsay Lohan To Be Charged With Grand Felony Theft

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors say they will charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store.

The charge, which will be filed Wednesday, brings the troubled star another step closer to returning to jail.

Los Angeles police said Wednesday that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan’s home, but it was turned into a police station before any search was made.

A phone message to Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was not immediately returned.

The 24-year-old remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a judge had threatened to throw her in jail if she ran into trouble again.

    If that was one of us middle class citizens with no celebrity power, man we would’ve been in the slammer a long time ago and been treated so bad. Been slapped with high fines, a record, and prison time practically. Why should she stop doing drugs, alcohol, and stealing if she’s never rightfully punished for her actions? Who would stop if no one stopped them?
