Snoop Dogg busted with dagga, cash

Oslo - Norwegian media are reporting that Snoop Dogg was briefly detained in Norway after entering the country with marijuana and a large amount of cash.

Customs officials decline to confirm the report, saying only that an American artist entered Norway with a small amount of marijuana that was detected by a sniffer-dog. Norwegian law prevents law enforcement officials from naming suspects.

A customs officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said on Thursday that the artist was also carrying more cash than is legally allowed and was subsequently fined 52 000 kroner ($8 600) for the violations.

Snoop Dogg was scheduled to perform on Thursday at a musical festival in the southern town of Kristiansand.

The rapper, whose name is Calvin Broadus, has in the past been arrested on marijuana possession.
