The jewelry store accusing Lindsay Lohan of stealing a necklace said it will auction off that necklace for charity.

Kamofie & Co. released surveillance video of Lohan to The Associated Press, which negotiated a deal with Entertainment Tonight. Kamofie & Co. sold the surveillance video to a celebrity show for a reported $35,000. The video, which aired Monday, is key evidence in determining whether Lohan is guilty of felony grand theft.

Lohan pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due back in court Thursday.

Some suggest that the store pressed charges against the actress to stir up publicity - a claim the company denies.

"The extensive media coverage of this case has been surprising, to say the least, and we are disappointed and upset by the various articles which have challenged our integrity," said Christopher Spencer, a spokesperson for the company.

The necklace is still being held as evidence in the case, but Kamofie & Co. is asking the public to weigh in on which charity should benefit from the eventual auction.
