Lindsay Lohan, 24, began serving house arrest Thursday morning at her Venice, Calif., townhouse after turning herself in to the Lynwood Jail hours earlier.

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

Whitmore adds that Lohan surrendered to the facility at 5:02 a.m., where it was determined she was eligible for home confinement. The actress was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and released in less than an hour. No booking photo was taken.

Lohan had been sentenced to four months in jail after she pleaded no contest to stealing a $2,500 necklace, but jail overcrowding issues and the fact that she's a nonviolent offender made her eligible for house arrest.

The actress, however, is expected to serve 35 days of confinement due to good behavior and budgetary constraints.

Whitmore declined to say whether any exceptions would allow Lohan to leave her home. But he previously stated that her ankle bracelet will not be detecting for drugs or alcohol.

Lohan also serving 480 hours of community service – mostly at a downtown women's shelter – and is expected to serve janitorial duty at the L.A. County morgue. At her last hearing, the judge forbade the actress to attend community service while under house arrest.
