Lohan's 25 minutes with 'stolen' necklace

Lindsay Lohan spent 25 minutes wearing a necklace inside a jewellery store that accused her of theft, surveillance video shows.

The TV show Entertainment Tonight aired several snippets of footage shot by four cameras inside Kamofie & Co, a jewellery store near Lohan's home in Venice, California.

The footage shows the actress trying on three necklaces before putting on the one reported stolen roughly 20 minutes after entering the store.

She is scheduled to return to court later today to tell a judge whether she intends to take a plea deal that includes serving time in jail.

She could also opt to fight the case, which would then proceed to a preliminary hearing that could end with Lohan being ordered to stand trial and being sent back to jail.

The actress was on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case when police began investigating her for the necklace theft, and a judge has said he thinks she has violated her probation.

Video footage aired yesterday shows Lohan (24) chatting with a clerk while trying on several necklaces, all but one of which she quickly removed, according to the show. She placed one of her own necklaces over the store's necklace and continued to browse in the store, the video shows.
