Local woman arrested in Thailand

Local woman arrested in Thailand

Brittney and her friend Furlong Lee have admitted to defacing the ancient wall.

The words "Scouser Lee" were painted on the wall, apparently a reference to the English city of Liverpool.

Lee Furlong and Brittney Schneider, both 23, were a‌rr‌est‌e‌d‌ at a hostel in Chiang Mai on Friday, Thai Rath News reported.

Col. Teerasak Sriprasert, chief of the Chiang Mai police, said that Lee admitted that he wrote "Scouser Lee" on the 800-year old wall, while Schneider told police that she wrote the letter "B" underneath it.

They are charged with vandalism after CCTV footage showed them spray-painting a 13th Century red brick wall near Tha Phae Gate.

Tell us: are you being affected by extreme weather in the UK?
Combine this with the pretty frightful weather we've had overnight and it doesn't give you very good driving conditions. This video, taken by Tom Hurley, shows the waves coming over the sea wall and the seafront road submerged in water.

She said she is overwhelmed by the charges against her daughter. She said that the "routine" action, which looks like a march of shame, would have been the case if it was domestic or foreign-born suspects. "She's never been in trouble in her life".

"Consular services are being provided to a Canadian citizen who has been arrested in Thailand", said a statement from spokesman Philip Hannan.

Tara said Canadian officials told her there is nothing they can do to change local laws in Thailand.

Schneider's mom said they have been working with the consulate.

The CBC reports bail money has been sent to Thailand by Schneider's mother but she will have to stay in Thailand until she goes to trial.
