After more than 13 years behind bars in an Indonesian prison the first member of the Bali Nine drug smugglers is set to be released and head home to Australia.

Renae Lawrence was the only woman in the failed 2005 plot as they tried to smuggle more than eight kilogramme of heroin.

Two of her co-plotters were executed but Lawrence, who had turned informer, was given a 20 year sentence and is now being released early for good behaviour.

Channel Nine's Jess Millward told Larry Williams Lawrence is facing an arrest warrant when she returns home over a high speed police pursuit in the months before she came to Bali.

"We heard from NSW police that they are going to speak to her lawyers in the coming days."
