Lindsay Lohan Headed to Court Thursday

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan will make an appearance in a Los Angeles court on Thursday in connection to her grand theft case, at which time she'll have to decide whether to cop a plea in her alleged theft of a $2,500 necklace last January, or take her chances with a trial.

TMZ.com reports she will likely choose the latter option.  The website also reports Lohan's lawyer and a prosecutor handling the case met Wednesday but did not come away with an agreement.  A judge told Lohan at her arraignment that if she accepts a plea deal, she will go to jail.

Entertainment Tonight has been airing footage of the surveillance video of Lohan taken at the Venice, California jewelry store Kamofie & Co. on the day of the alleged theft.  Kamofie, which reportedly received at least $40,000 for releasing the tape to the media, is now planning to sell the necklace at auction after the case is resolved, according to TMZ.com.  The proceeds from the auction would go to charity.

Lindsay Lohan Claims She Only Borrowed Allegedly Stolen Necklace

Photo Courtesy - Al Seib/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan says she didn't steal a necklace that disappeared from a Venice, California store on Jan. 22, which she was allegedly spotted wearing.

Insiders tell TMZ someone loaned the piece to the Mean Girls star.  She claims she returned it to a stylist, who failed to bring it back to the store.  The actress also says the stylist in question brought the necklace to the police on Tuesday night after cops received a warrant that gave them permission to search Lohan's home for the item.  Police on Wednesday reportedly turned over their findings in the investigation to Los Angeles prosecutors.

The claim of someone loaning Lohan the $2,500 necklace conflicts with a new RadarOnline report that cites a law enforcement source as saying the actress is seen on store surveillance video wearing the bling, and not paying for it.

The law enforcement insider tells the website, “The surveillance video clearly shows Lindsay Lohan taking the necklace from the store.”   The insider goes on to state, “Law enforcement believe the video will prove that the actress took the necklace, because it doesn’t, at any point, show her paying for the item.”

The source tells RadarOnline, “This doesn’t appear to be a miscommunication between two people, as Lindsay is claiming.  Lindsay says she borrowed the necklace, the evidence just doesn’t support Lindsay’s story.”

According to TMZ, police informed the Los Angeles County Probation Department on Tuesday night of its investigation.  Though Lohan met with her probation officer on Wednesday, TMZ says the alleged necklace theft was not a topic of discussion.  Instead, she underwent a drug test.

Report: Lindsay Lohan May Be Involved in Stolen Jewelry Case

Photo Courtesy - Stephen Dunn/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles police have reportedly asked a judge for a search warrant for Lindsay Lohan’s Venice Beach home based on suspicions that she has a stolen piece of expensive jewelry, RadarOnline reports.

The website says investigators told the judge they have video of the Mean Girls star wearing the stolen bling.  RadarOnline quotes one law enforcement source as saying, “Lindsay is being accused of stealing high-end jewelry, including a necklace.  A search warrant was requested Tuesday...to search Lindsay’s house for the item of jewelry in question.”

The report says if the stolen jewelry is worth more than $5,000, Lohan could be charged with a felony.  No word on if the judge approved the search warrant.
