Lindsay Lohan surveillance video stills from jewelry store surface online
A website called necklacevideo.com claims to have the "exclusive license" to the surveillance video tape of Lindsay Lohan in the Venice jewelry store Kamofie and Co. on the day she allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace, according to ABC News, which also reports that the video might have been sold to the site by the jewelry company.
"Speculation as to what occurred that day has been the subject of intense rumor in the media and elsewhere," a statement on the website said. "Many individuals want to be able to see the video streams from the jewelry store's surveillance cameras, and we have obtained the exclusive license for them."
The 24-year-old actress faces jail time for violating her probation and is also facing a charge of felony grand theft involving a necklace that the jewelry store had reported missing. Lohan pleaded not guilty in February and had said on her Twitter page that she "would never steal."
Lohan is accused of stealing the necklace from Kamofie and Co. on Jan. 22, three weeks after she was released from court-ordered rehab. The Los Angeles Police Department issued a search warrant on Feb. 2 for Lohan's home to try to find the necklace, but it was returned to police before the warrant was served.
Entertainment Tonight released stills from the video which feature the actress trying on various pieces of jewelry. Footage from the video is reportedly slated to air on Monday during the entertainment news show's broadcast.
Lohan's lawyer has said the actress' case is "entirely defensible" but that they "will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her career."
Lohan's three stints behind bars have each lasted 84 minutes, 14 days and 15 hours - the last of which occurred in September after she failed a drug test and wrote about it on her Twitter page.
