WNBA player Brittney Griner is being detained in Russia after customs officials said they found hashish oil in her luggage at an airport near Moscow in February, according to a report in the New York Times on Saturday.

The Russian Federal Customs Service alleged on Saturday that it searched Griner’s belongings and found wipe cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis – a crime that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

While Griner was not mentioned by name, the Customs Service identified the detained man as a player for the US women’s team but did not specify the date of his detention.


This year, Griner is set to take a league-maximum $227,900 annual salary from Mercury, but it’s only in recent years that his payday has climbed into the six-figure range.

She reportedly earns $1 million per season with UMMC Ekaterinburg, according to Jeff Metcalf of The Arizona Republic.
