Lindsay Lohan’s luck might be changing. The 26-year-old actress managed to find herself in the middle of a crime scene and was interviewed by police regarding a burglary at a Hollywood Hills home on Aug. 19.
Lohan reportedly slept over at the home along with several other guests and when they woke up in the morning, the home’s owner called the cops claiming two watches and an expensive pair of sunglasses, which totaled about $100,000 in value, had been stolen.
Police sources told TMZ that Lohan is considered a “person of interest,” and reportedly have a theory that she let two friends into the home, and they took the items. That wouldn’t be good news for the actress who finally completed her probation requirements stemming from a 2007 DUI a few short months ago — but the case may already be closed.
Sources told the website that owner of home has backtracked on his story and wrote a letter to the police, admitting nothing was actually stolen. The case is currently still under investigation, but if the home owner recants, it’s doubtful that the case will continue.
That’s good news for Lohan, who was less than impressed with the media attention the case brought her. The “Mean Girls” actress has been working to try to get her career and life back on track after what seems like an endless string of trouble.
“All of this negative press is BS…. Whenever I’m doing great, people fabricate lies. It’s such a shame. I’m just sayin’ xo,” she tweeted on Aug. 22.
Lohan does have a point. Aside from being dragged into the burglary case, she’s been doing well. She just wrapped filming “The Canyons,” and the film’s producer Braxton Pope, penned an essay about working with the actress and only had good things to say:
“It is impossible to not be impressed by Lindsay’s command of the script, her ability to run off pages and pages of dialogue flawlessly, her active and vital engagement in the storytelling, in camera angles, in the mechanics of filmmaking,” he wrote.
