Texas woman charged with luring Ont. teen

A Texas woman was arrested Tuesday for allegedly luring a 16-year-old boy from Barrie, Ont.

The woman, Lauri Price, a 42-year-old mother of four, is charged with two counts of online solicitation of a minor and one count of child enticement.

Price was arrested as she returned to Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Police in Barrie believe Price flew into Canada on Dec. 29, rented a car and picked up the teenager at his home.

A subsequent search ended when the pair were later spotted in Orillia, Ont.

The boy was returned to his parents unharmed.

Price was released by Canadian authorities, but arrested upon her return to Texas, where the age of consent is 17. In Canada, the age of consent is 16.

Price is being held in jail with bail set at $310,000 for the three charges she is facing.

The teenager and Price apparently started a relationship two years ago through an online fantasy game.
