TMZ has obtained the police report detailing how Lindsay Lohan allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace from a Los Angeles jeweler.
But the site reveals that the report shows two glaring inconstancies that could save the actress, 24, from more time in the slammer.
According to the report, the jeweler first told police Lohan had been in the store three times before the alleged theft -- looking at the necklace in question. The next day, the jeweler changed her story and said it was actually a ring Lindsay had been eyeing on previous visits and never looked at the necklace, reports TMZ.
The second inconsistency: The report states that on Jan. 23 the owner told police, "The surveillance video revealed that as Kaman [owner] was talking to Lindsay's male friend, Lohan reached up to her neck area with both hands, removed the store necklace, and placed it inside her black Chanel bag."
But after reviewing surveillance video on a different monitor a second time, the owner changed her story, saying Lindsay walked out of her store with the necklace around her neck.
Lohan is claiming she did not steal the necklace, that it was on loan.
The actress, who pleaded not guilty to a felony grand-theft charge Wednesday, is due to return to court Feb. 23.
If convicted, she could face up to three years in prison.
She is still on probation for a 2007 drunk driving and cocaine possession offense.
