Lindsay Lohan, who recently checked out of rehab, is to be charged with felony grand theft of 2,500 dollars (1,600 pounds) necklace reportedly stolen from a jewellery shop last month.
District Attorney''s spokeswoman Jane Robison said the charge would be filed on Wednesday, reports the Telegraph.The actress is due in court for an arraignment on Wednesday afternoon.
The charge brings the Mean Girls star another step closer to jail.
Lohan, 24, remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a judge had threatened to throw her in jail if she ran into trouble again.
Los Angeles police said on Feb. 2 that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice shop later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan''s home, but it was turned into a police station before any search was made.
