She couldn’t immediately be reached for additional details by The Associated Press.

Whelan is head of global security for a Michigan-based auto parts supplier. He was arrested Friday.

In announcing the arrest three days later, the Russian Federal Security Service said Whelan was caught “during an espionage operation,” but gave no details.
