Weed-smuggler WNBA player Brittney Griner has been taken to a penal colony in the Russian region of Mordovia, a source familiar with the case told Reuters on Thursday.

Asked about Griner’s case, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said: “We are aware of reports of her location, and in frequent contact with Ms. Griner’s legal team.

“However, the Russian Federation has still failed to provide any official notification for such a move of a U.S. citizen, which we strongly protest. The Embassy has continued to press for more information about her transfer and current location.”
