Prosecutors say police have presented potential evidence in a jewelry theft case against Lindsay Lohan, but they don't expect to make an immediate decision on charges.

Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says police turned over the results of their investigation Wednesday afternoon. The "Mean Girls" star is being investigated for grand theft after a jewelry store reported a $2,500 necklace missing.

Detectives got a search warrant to try to retrieve the necklace from Lohan's home, but it was turned in at a substation Tuesday evening.

Gibbons said prosecutors will not decide whether to file charges against Lohan on Wednesday.

Phone and e-mail messages to Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, were not returned.
