Lindsay Lohan failed to hand back a necklace in the days after she is alleged to have stolen it from a jewellery store because she was "very busy", according to a police report.
The Mean Girls star has pleaded not guilty to a charge of felony grand theft over allegations she stole the expensive piece from the Kamofie & Company shop in Venice, California last month (Jan11).
The actress claims she took the necklace on loan, and newly-obtained police documents reveal Lohan is adamant she intended to return the item to store owners - but her hectic schedule prevented her from doing so.
The star's assistant stated, "Ms. Lohan was in possession of the necklace and wanted to give the necklace back to the store the day after she took it from the store, but she was very busy."
According to TMZ.com, the aide also tried returning the necklace to the boutique, but a phone call to the shop went unanswered.
Lohan, who is currently free on bail, is due back in court on 23 February (11).
