Lindsay Lohan officially a suspect in jewelry heist

Lindsay Lohan leaving The Dream Hotel in New York (8/22)

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Lindsay Lohan is officially a suspect in the theft of $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses from the Hollywood Hills home of Sam Magid during a house party last weekend. If she hadn’t plea-bargained her past crimes down, she’d be facing her third strike and life in prison. But she’s not, so woo hoo! Everything’s coming up Lindsay! From TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us Lindsay and her assistant Gavin Doyle are both suspects in the theft.

Now here’s the twist. We’re told Sam has recanted his story and now says nothing was stolen. But our sources say cops are not closing out the investigation because they believe they have independent witnesses who can finger Lindsay and Gavin as the thieves.

Sources tell us LAPD detectives contacted the lawyer for Lindsay and Gavin today, asking for an interview with the two suspects but the lawyer rejected the request.

Detectives knew they had the right suspect when they asked Lindsay for a written statement, and she handed them back a piece of paper that said “I suck your dick?” Sorry Lindsay, this is an election year. You can’t blow your way out of this one.
