    A non-binary Biden administration nuclear official accused of
    stealing a woman’s suitcase from the Minneapolis airport
    allegedly emptied out the clothes and used the bag for a month —
    despite insisting it was picked up by accident.

    Sam Brinton — one of the federal government’s first gender non-
    binary officials — allegedly snatched the $2,325 Vera Bradley
    suitcase from baggage claim at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport back
    on Sept. 16, court documents say.

    When Brinton, who uses they/them pronouns, was confronted by
    police nearly a month later, they initially denied stealing the
    bag — insisting their clothes were inside the suitcase at the

    But Brinton, the deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and
    waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of
    Nuclear Energy, quickly backtracked and claimed they had taken
    the piece of luggage by mistake.

    Brinton told police they first realized the bag wasn’t theirs
    when they opened it at the hotel, according to the court filing.

    They got nervous that someone would think they stole it, so they
    emptied out the suitcase and dumped the woman’s clothes in the
    drawers of the hotel room, the court documents say.

    Brinton allegedly put the ordeal down to exhaustion.

    When police were first alerted to the stolen bag, they reviewed
    surveillance footage that showed Brinton allegedly grabbing the
    luggage from the carousel and removing the ID tag identifying
    the owner.

    Brinton was later captured on surveillance using the same
    suitcase on at least two trips to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18
    and Oct. 9, according to authorities.

    Police first made contact with Brinton on Oct. 9 about the
    alleged stolen suitcase.

    “If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I
    don’t have any clothes for another individual,” Brinton
    initially told the cop. “That was my clothes when I opened the

    Brinton called the officer back two hours and confessed to not
    being “completely honest.”

    The Biden official was charged with felony theft of a moveable
    property without consent.

    They were placed on leave in the wake of the allegations and
    another official was named as their interim replacement earlier
    this month, according to the Exchange Monitor, which tracks
    government officials’ moves.

    If convicted, Brinton could face up to five years in prison
    and/or a $10,000 fine.
