Video shows attempted burglary at Lindsay Lohan’s house


Earlier this week it was reported that Lindsay Lohan’s house was broken into and ransacked. Soon after it was revealed that the mess inside was not due to a burglary but was in fact Lohan’s own mess. Lindsay can save a little bit of her dignity from all this – it’s now been revealed that burglars did in fact try to get into her home. They just failed – burglars aren’t generally the smartest criminals out there. On the one hand, it’s good they didn’t actually get into Lohan’s house. On the other it’s almost too bad, because at least she could have blamed her mess on them. In fact if it really was so extreme that cops thought the place had been ransacked, it’s quite possible the burglars couldn’t have found whatever they wanted and would have given up anyway.

Turns out, burglars did try to break into Lindsay Lohan’s Hollywood home. has confirmed that two unidentified men — one wearing a baseball cap and the other with a bandana over his face — tried to enter the actress’ home around 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Surveillance photos captured a 4-door gray Dodge Magnum station wagon with paper plates and custom wheels parked in front of the home.

“While the driver stayed inside, the passenger suspect stepped out of the vehicle, walked through a gate and entered the backyard of the residence,” police said in a statement.

“Investigators believed that the suspect tried to gain entry by using an unknown type tool to pry open a back window and door. After the unsuccessful attempt, the suspects drove off.”

Nothing screams “criminal mastermind” quite like parking your car right in front of the home you’re trying to break into. I think the only thing smarter than that would be touching a lot of scotch tape with your bare fingertips and leaving big tape thumbprints all over the house. Which I am absolutely doing next time I commit crime.

No word on if the burglars were specifically targeting Lohan or if they were just going for a random house. I can’t totally fault Lohan’s priorities on this one: she may be too cheap to get a housekeeper, but that security system paid for itself pretty quickly.

    the story is still the same…someone tried to break in and her house is a mess but not from the break in.

    what’s changed?

    Exactly WHY would I want to “shop her look”? Sorry, skank whore isn’t my style… 😆

    Housekeeper vs. thousand dollar handbags, a trip to Hawaii & no job, sounds like LL to me!

    These burglars sound like they could end up on the next episode of America’s Dumbest Criminals. Not surprised to hear that her house is as messed up as her life.
