LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan remains under investigation for possible grand theft hours after detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve a necklace reported stolen, police said Wednesday.

Officer Bruce Borihanh said the $2,500 piece of jewelry was reported stolen on Jan. 22, roughly three weeks after the "Mean Girls" star was released after spending three months in court-ordered rehab.

The store is in the Venice area of Los Angeles, where the actress now lives, he said.

The necklace was turned over to detectives on Tuesday, hours after police obtained a search warrant for Lohan's home, Borihanh said.

An e-mail message sent to Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was not immediately returned.

Police were not releasing additional details about the item Wednesday morning.

Lohan, 24, remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and is due in court later this month.

Prosecutors in Riverside County continue to consider whether to press battery charges against Lohan over a December altercation the actress had with a worker at a Betty Ford Center facility in Palm Desert.

Any additional convictions could land the former Disney star back in jail. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox had warned Lohan at a hearing last year that he would send her back to jail if she violated the terms of her probation again.

The investigation was first reported by celebrity website RadarOnline.com.
