Snoop Dogg Stopped at Italy Airport for Carrying $422,000 in Cash
It’s looks like Snoop Dogg can’t get no love in the European countries. After barking at Swedish police for racially profiling him, the veteran rhyme-slinger was recently detained in Italy for carrying thousands of dollars in cash.
On Saturday (Aug. 1), Snoop was stopped by Italian authorities at the Lamezia Terme airport in Southern Italy with $422,000 in cash, which is “well above” the legal limit of $11,000 for undeclared transportation across European borders.
Financial police confirmed to the Associated Press that half of the money was impounded under Italy’s anti-money laundering codes. However, there is a silver lining in all of this. Barring any fines issued by the judge, Snoop should be able to get his other half of the money back.
The Doggfather is currently on his European tour. The “Gin & Juice” rapper performed in Calabria last Friday (July 31) and will hit the stage at England’s Kendal Calling Festival on Sunday (Aug. 2).
With all of that cash, there’s no question that Snoop’s mind is on the money and the money is on his mind.
