Snoop had arrived in the country earlier this week in his private jet for a performance in the village of Montepaone. He told police that the cash was to pay his band for concerts in Italy and elsewhere, the source said.
Snoop Dogg then left for London. The finance police will open an investigation into the Italian concert and how the rapper was paid.
No word on whether or not Snoop’s camp will appeal to get the money back. [CNN]
