Snoop Dogg has had over $200,000 seized by Italian police. The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper was stopped at an airport in Calabria, Italy on Saturday as he tried to board a private plane to England, and officers discovered $422,000 in cash inside his luggage. In a bid to curb money laundering, countries in the European Union prohibit airline passengers from carrying more than 10,000 Euros ($11,000) in undeclared cash, so the authorities seized $205,933 of Snoop's money. The 'Peaches n Cream' hitmaker told police the cash was to pay his band for concerts in Italy and elsewhere, a source told CNN. The finance police will now open an investigation into his concert in Montepaone and how the rapper was paid. The star's Italian lawyer, Andrea Parisi, said Snoop will have to pay a fine and the authorities will retain the cash until the amount of the penalty is set.
