LA County DA Will Not Prosecute Lindsay Lohan for Jewelry Heist
On Wednesday, TMZ was told that Lindsay Lohan will not be prosecuted for stealing over $100,000 in watches and sunglasses from a home in Hollywood Hills. The L.A. County District Attorney’s office made the announcement because they rejected the case. The charge evaluation worksheet for the D.A. says that there is not enough evidence to file a burglary charge against Lohan.
The District Attorney said that Lohan and the owner of the home that was burglarized, Sam Magid, have had a ‘longstanding relationship.’ The owner never named Lohan as a suspect in the crime, according to the District Attorney, and that the “potential eyewitnesses have refused to become involved.”
Also missing from the case is the fact that the other suspects involved were not found with any of the stolen property in their possession. Gavin Doyle, the assistant for Lohan, also will not be prosecuted in the case. TMZ was told by a representative from the District Attorney’s Office that, “The District Attorney’s Office received no evidence that any jewelry, including watches, was taken. 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.” It seems as though the original complaint of $100,000 in jewelry being stolen never reached the D.A.’s Office in the first place.
