According to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County, Minnesota, 35-year-old Sam Brinton, who serves as a nuclear official under President Biden, is facing up to five years in prison and the possibility of paying up to $10,000 in fines. Authorities charged the non-binary individual with felony theft after they hijacked a Vera Bradley suitcase and its contents, which were estimated to cost $2,325 in total.
Brinton reportedly stole the luggage from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport baggage claim on September 16. They allegedly used the suitcase for at least a month after dumping the original owner’s clothes in a hotel dresser. Surveillance video captured Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the identification tag before proceeding to leave the airport with it.
The criminal complaint states that Brinton was seen using the luggage on two separate occasions. The first time was only days after the theft, on September 18, as the official departed to DC, and the second occurred on October 9, when Brinton returned to the Capitol after a trip from Europe.
