    10 years on -Lisa Marie Smith: who?

    Right then, little blast from the past to see who has been here too long.








    Anyone remember Lisa Marie Smith?











    Where is she now?


    Drug suspect slips below radar

    FORMER Hobart private schoolgirl who jumped bail while facing drug smuggling charges in Thailand 10 years ago may finally be home free.

    Australian and British police admit they are no longer looking for 31-year-old Lisa Marie Smith, who was once on Interpol's 10 most-wanted list.
    Thai police privately concede their investigation into her whereabouts has also been unsuccessful.
    Ms Smith attended girls' school St Michael's Collegiate while growing up in Hobart in the late 1980s.
    She has been on the run since 1996, when she failed to appear in a Thai court to face charges of smuggling almost 4kg of hashish and 565 amphetamine tablets.
    She was the first foreigner facing drug charges to be granted bail after the court made a shock decision to release her from Bangkok Women's Prison and allow her to keep her Australian passport.
    Ms Smith's millionaire father Terry posted a surety of $74,000.
    But she owes her freedom to more than her family's wealth.
    She has also been helped by her own daring and an array of keystone cops errors by authorities.
    Ms Smith was issued with a new passport by the Australian embassy in Athens less than three weeks after a Bangkok court issued a warrant for her arrest.
    Thai authorities announced they had traced Ms Smith to Greece about three months after she fled Thailand.
    But she gave Interpol the slip probably by leaving the Greek islands on a motor cruiser hired by either a relative or family friend.
    In 1999, a Christmas card taunt to police that appeared to be from Ms Smith convinced authorities she was in England.
    Police believed she sent the card to an Australian detective she knew in a bid to distract inquiries away from England.
    In 2001, Federal Police and Interpol investigated claims Ms Smith may have been secretly living in Australia as a newlywed housewife.



    Former Hobart schoolgirl and drug suspect Lisa Marie Smith has eluded Interpol, which has given up looking for her.

    She's a bit chubby, no I don't remember her but hashish smuggling really doesn't figure up there. I'd say it's a waste of money to chase after her.

    Evidently she is running a cafe in Dublin at the moment. So says one of the British daily papers. Daddy promptly paid around 55,000 Dollars and the next thing you know she has skipped town. As you would facing what she was facing

    On the most wanted list for four keys of hash and five hundred odd speed pills? Hardly Pablo Escobar is she.

    ^^In this case, I'd go pretty strongly with repels.
