Lindsay Lohan's latest headline-grabbing exploit is a real gem.

British police are investigating the disappearance of roughly $410,000 worth of jewelry, which went missing earlier this month after a London photo shoot featuring the star.

Scotland Yard—not to mention LiLo's reps—was quick to deny that Lohan was a suspect, but confirmed that everyone present for the picture session, held June 6 for Elle UK, will be questioned.

The baubles—a necklace and diamond earrings loaned to the magazine by Dior, were reported AWOL two days after the shoot—just as Lohan made her way back stateside.

If nothing else, this oughta help ease her little boredom problem.

"We have received an allegation of theft of jewelry which was from studios in Brewery Road, in Islington," a Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed.

"The theft was reported to us on June 8, after earrings and a necklace believed to be worth in the region of [$410,000] were found to be missing approximately two days earlier.

"Enquiries are continuing and no arrest has been made at this stage."

While it's been reported that up to a dozen people may be questioned, Lohan, for now, is not one of them.

"We haven't been contacted yet by anyone," the 22-year-old's rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, told RadarOnline. "Lindsay hopes they find the missing items."

Zelnik also said that Lohan would be "happy to cooperate" with the investigation.

Elle UK issued a statement echoing Zelnik's comments, and clarifying that the magazine doesn't suspect their would-be cover girl of any sticky-fingered undertakings.

"I can confirm on behalf of Elle magazine that items of jewelry went missing from an Elle photoshoot…and the matter is now being investigated by police," a spokeswoman for the magazine said.

"Elle has no reason to believe that Lindsay Lohan was in any way responsible and has no further comment to make."

The actress and spray tan entrepreneur has been on both sides of theft allegations before.

Earlier this year, Lohan settled a lawsuit with 22-year-old student Masha Markova, who accused the erstwhile Mean Girls star of swiping a $11,000 fur coat after a night of clubbing back in January 2008. A few weeks after the mink went MIA, Lohan was spotted donning a similar looking fur in paparazzi shots. The coat was eventually returned.

Back in 2006, and back in London, Lohan's Hermès bag and its pricey, jewel-filled contents somehow went missing en route to Heathrow Airport. A few hours later, the bag and all of its contents were found in the airport parking lot.
