Lindsay Lohan to be charged with theft of $2,500 worth necklace

43321.jpegProsecutors are expected to formally charge Lindsay Lohan on Wednesday with felony grand theft related to a necklace allegedly taken from a California jewelry store in January.

The actress "allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22," a statement from the district attorney's office said. "The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.'s office last week," according to CNN.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said Tuesday they plan to file charges against actress Lindsay Lohan for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store.

The felony grand theft charge will be the most serious faced by Lohan, who over the last two years has made headlines for court appearances and stints in rehab. She will be arraigned Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at Airport Court.

Lohan is on probation and faces a criminal investigation in Riverside County involving allegations that she shoved a worker at the Betty Ford Center. She did not immediately comment on the latest charge, but her attorney has released a statement saying the actress would fight any criminal charges, Los Angeles Times reports.
