(CBS) Lindsay Lohan surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning and has begun serving her sentence under house arrest.

The actress, 24, turned herself in to Lynwood Jail at 5:02 a.m., where it was determined that she was eligible for home confinement. She was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and sent to her home in Venice, Calif.

"She is now confined to the interior premises of her home at all times," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told People magazine.

It took about an hour for Lohan to be fingerprinted and booked, according to The Associated Press. No new booking photo was taken.

Lohan pleaded no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace earlier this month, and was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her probation. She was also ordered to undergo psychological counseling and complete a shoplifters alternative class.

That four-month sentence will likely be reduced due to good behavior and budget constraints. Whitmore says Lohan is expected to serve about 35 days of her sentence.

Lohan was eligible for house arrest because she is a non-violent offender. She was also sentenced to 480 hours of community service, which she is completing at a women's shelter and the Los Angeles County morgue.
