Prosecutors will not press charges against Lindsay Lohan for an alleged theft from a Hollywood home, averting yet another court case for the troubled star.
According to Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Deborah L. Kranze, there was insufficient evidence to file charges against the 26-year-old Liz & Dick star and her assistant over the alleged theft of $6400 worth of cash and property during a party at the property.
"We do not have sufficient evidence to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt," she said.
"One of the suspects makes a vague admission that he and the others were there, and that 'someone' took something but is not more specific than that. The fact that our suspects are found in a car that is similar to the one seen at the time of the burglary adds little to the case."
Items allegedly stolen from the home on 18 August included $3000 in cash, four pairs of sunglasses, an iPod and keys to two cars and a house.
Kranze also added that "in addition to these evidentiary insufficiencies, the [victims] do not wish to pursue the prosecution of this matter."
Of the incident, Lohan's spokesman Steve Honig said in a statement: "Lindsay is glad this matter has been cleared up so she can focus on her upcoming projects.”
Lohan has faced a string of legal and personal problems over the past few years, and it was only in March this year that a Los Angeles judge formally ended the star's probation after a long string of court appearances stemming from a 2007 charge of driving under the influence.
