(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Rapper Snoop Dogg is on the witness list in a Utah-based trial.

The government served Snoop Dogg -- also known as Calvin Broadus -- with a subpoena in the weapons and drug trafficking trial of Weldon H-Angelos.

The creator of Utah-based Extravagant Records is accused of distributing marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of stolen firearms and money laundering.

The indictment says Angelos rented a house and an apartment and used them for illegal activity, including storing marijuana.

Angelos' record label recently released a C-D featuring a compilation of artists including Snoop Dogg.

The trial began in Utah federal court yesterday, and is expected to last six days.
