The Daily Telegraph reports that police will arrest the 41-year-old over an alleged high speed chase in a stolen car on the NSW Central Coast in March 2005.

Lawrence was due to face court over the pursuit one month later but she was arrested with 2.2kg of heroin strapped to her back and legs at Bali's airport, along with eight other Australians attempting to smuggle the drug.

She's set to finally face court over the car chase when she flies back to Sydney after she is released from an Indonesian prison on Wednesday, having served 12 years of a 20-year sentence.

"A 41-year-old woman has two outstanding warrants for offences including steal motor vehicle, drive unlicensed, speeding and fail to comply with police directions," a police spokesman told the newspaper.
