She went from innocent to Person of Interest real quick! And now, the case may end up being closed altogether since Lindsay’s “friend” recanted their story they’d originally told police.
The strugglin’ actress was partying at a friends swanky home in the Hollywood Hills and crashed for the night along with other guests. Lindsay also brought two additional male friends with her to the party who also spent the night. When everyone woke up the next morning, the owner of the home claimed expensive jewelry had been stolen from the property. Lindsay insisted she had nothing to do with it.
Law enforcement sources tell us they are not ready to call Lindsay a suspect, but they are suspicious of her actions at a house party where 2 watches and an expensive pair of sunglasses — total value $100,000 — supposedly went missing. We’re told Lindsay let 2 friends into the house and cops think when they left they took the goods … and she may have been in on it.
But now there’s a twist in Lindsay’s favor. We’re told the owner of the house has recanted his story and written a letter to cops saying nothing was stolen. Of course, it flies in the face of his actions Sunday night when he called the cops and made the theft report.
Michael Lohan tells TMZ, “After personally speaking with the homeowner, there was NOTHING stolen from his home. Lindsay has no involvement and the owner has told the cops that.”
We’re told as of now the matter is still under investigation, but if the “victim” recants, it’s unlikely the case will proceed.
Sounds suspect to us. We hope she didn’t pocket her girls bling.
