Striker Lavezzi accused of smuggling Pompeii find

Naples, July 10 - Paris Saint-Germain star Ezequiel Lavezzi is under investigation for attempting to smuggle a statuette from Pompeii out of Italy on a private plane, police said Wednesday. Customs officers making a routine check in May 2012 seized the find from Lavezzi's luggage as he was preparing to leave Naples airport. The Argentina striker, who played for Napoli for five years, told police the ancient Roman artefact was "a gift from an acquaintance", prosecutors said.
