Will Lindsay Lohan be arrested soon based on the suspicion that the actress is guilty of a $35,000 watch theft? She will if the L. A. County Sheriff’s Office actually have the evidence that TMZ is reporting that they have.
Lindsay Lohan Arrest Potential on Theft Suspicion
Lindsay Lohan is like any other citizen: innocent until proven guilty. And while Lindsay is suspected of the $35,000 watch theft, according to TMZ, that hasn’t been proven yet. If L.A. County Sheriff’s Officers do have evidence that she is–or was–in possession of a stolen piece of property they would have arrested her.
Lindsay Lohan Theft Suspicion May be Fabricated
Not all Lindsay Lohan stories in the media are accurate. Not all theft suspicions are founded on facts either. If a visitor to Lindsay’s home left behind a watch, as is reported to be the case, than that isn’t theft unless Lindsay purposefully took and hid the watch from her visitor while they were in her home.

Theft of jewelry isn’t always an adult crime; it is sometimes one committed by a younger crowd. And Lindsay Lohan is being accused of a $35,000 watch theft that might not be something she did. It could have been done by any of her other guests or home residents, including her younger sister.
Lindsay Lohan Watch Theft Suspicion
If the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office have any probable cause to search Lindsay’s home for a watch, as TMZ has reported that they have done; they wouldn’t sit on evidence. They would take action. But police can’t just arrest someone if they find a missing piece of jewelry in your home when the owner says they visited your home and left it there. That isn’t theft by legal definition.
L.A. County Sheriff’s Office and Lindsay Lohan
In order for there to be an actual crime a theft had to occur. Lindsay’s guest is saying they left it there. Unless
Lindsay is refusing to give it back to them, or is trying to pawn or sell it, she hasn’t committed a crime and the media could be sued for insinuating that she is suspected of theft if there wasn’t a theft in the first place.
Law enforcement will arrest Lindsay Lohan only if their investigation shows that she has stolen something. Otherwise, this is just another tabloid attempt to paint a girl struggling with addicitons in another harsh light and to drive up page views and ad revenue. And it isn’t funny. Law enforcement is too busy with real crime to have to deal with fake crime drama.
