According to the media, Leake has been a former U.S. military paratrooper in Moscow since 2010.

Russia has very stringent dr*g prohibitions.

In February of 2022, WNBA star Brittney Griner was arrested at the Moscow airport when police discovered vape canisters with cannabis oil in her luggage.

She had nine years added to her sentence but was released in December after being swapped for a Russian arms dealer doing time in a US pr!son.

In an email to The Associated Press, the US Department of State confirmed that it was aware of rumors that an American citizen had been detained in Moscow.

It said when a US citizen is detained overseas, the department “pursues consular access as soon as possible and works to provide all appropriate consular assistance.”

For reasons of confidentiality, the department declined additional comment.
