Lindsay Lohan was released from detention Thursday after spending 35 days at her Los Angeles-area home for stealing a gold necklace, authorities said.
A private company that handles monitoring equipment removed the electronic ankle bracelet from the Mean Girls star, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the sheriff's department.
Lohan was sentenced in May to 120 days in jail, but the 24-year-old actress qualified for a shorter period of house arrest under programs for nonviolent offenders and to reduce overcrowding in Los Angeles jails.
Lohan, a former child star, pleaded no contest in May to the theft of a $2,500 gold necklace from a Los Angeles boutique. She had walked out of the store wearing the jewelry.
Her promising Hollywood career has been derailed because of repeated run-ins with the law and trips to rehabilitation to deal with drug and alcohol problems. Nevertheless, she is due to start filming a movie about New York crime boss John Gotti later this year with co-stars John Travolta and Al Pacino.
