Richard Morales Wiki- Richard Morales Biography
Richard Morales Mia Etcheverria was one of five captured at Carrasco International Airport, in the Uruguayan capital Montevideo.
The adult actress, and ex-wife of Uruguayan football star Richard ‘Chengue’ Morales, 48, was nabbed by cops on June 24.
While the gang of five made their way through the airport, police carried out a routine check on one of the men.
Officers found his two suitcases had hidden compartments containing six slabs of cocaine with a staggering total weight 14lbs 5oz.
Cops then pulled over the rest of the group, including three women aged 26, 27, and 36, and a 35-year-old man.
Etcheverria initially denied having any knowledge of the drug plot but confessed later during a plea-bargaining deal, according to local reports.
Police then found Telegram messages while investigating the WAG’s mobile phone where she was seen giving other gang members tips on how to avoid being caught.
She told them: “It is your attitude that will determine your trip, you understand? Travel listening to music.”
Etcheverria added: “When you get off the plane, take photos (but do not upload anything) until you reach your destination. As touristy as possible, trust me.”
