Veteran DJ and producer David Morales has been released without charge following his arrest earlier this month at Japan’s Fukoka Airport for alleged drug possession.
Morales was detained “for allegedly violating the law on narcotics and psychotropics control” on October 7 after a customs official found 0.3g of MDMA in his carry-on baggage.
A statement released today by a representative for Morales said:
“We’re delighted to confirm that David Morales has been released without charge. David is well and has asked that we pass on his love and gratitude to all those who have shown their support. We will not be making any further comment, and request that David and his family’s privacy be respected at this time.”
At the time of the arrest Morales denied any knowledge of the drugs, making a statement to the Sankei Shimbun newspaper saying: “It’s not mine. (Someone) might have tried to frame me”.
