Italian Police Seize Over 200K From Snoop Dogg

By HHL Editors

Snoop Dogg is having a tough time in Europe.

Just a week after Snoop was arrested in Sweden for being on drugs (and somehow beat a piss test), the 43-year old was picked up at the Lamezia Terme airport in Italy with over $400,000 stuffed in a Louis Vuitton bag.

Since those travelling within the European Union are required to declare 10,000 euros ($11,000) or more in cash, half of Snoop's money was seized under an Italian anti-money laundering code.

Snoop, who had played a show in Italy Friday night, told officials he had earned the money on his European tour and was going to use it to pay his band. Then he flew to England, where he has another show, without the $205,933.

"We clarified everything from a legal point of view. The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction," said Andrea Parisi, Snoop's lawyer.
If this proves to be true, Snoop should eventually be able to get his money back, minus a fine.
