Two members of the controversial Russian punk band were detained by Russian police for a short time on Tuesday.

FOX’s Simon Owen has the details from Sochi:

It seems the two performers with the band Pussy Riot were detained by police on suspicion of theft. They’ve since been released. They say it happened as they walked through Sochi. The group also says this is their third detention in as many days. The band was only released from jail in December– after serving almost two years for performing a protest song in a cathedral.
