Sam Brinton, the Biden regime’s former Department of Energy official, has been released without bail after being accused of stealing two suitcases from an airport baggage claim on separate occasions.

The nonbinary ex-Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent Nuclear Fuel and Waste Disposition was caught stealing a Vera Bradley suitcase from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in September. The contents of the suitcase were reported to exceed $2,300.

The theft was caught on surveillance footage, and following a police investigation, Btinton admitted that he “accidentally” stole the woman’s bag, although he did not even have a checked bag on the flight.

Brinton, 35, was charged with felony theft of a moveable property without consent. He was subsequently placed on leave by the Department of Energy.

In December, the former Biden official was charged with a felony for a second suitcase theft, this time at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. For this second theft, Brinton faced grand larceny charges with a value between $1,200 and $5,000.

Shortly after the second theft, Brinton was fired from his job at the Department of Energy. The reason for this was never officially announced to the public.

After a hearing on Wednesday for the first luggage theft, Brinton was released without bail following a court appearance in Minnesota. The gender-fluid defendant was also ordered to not contact any of the victims.

In December, Brinton appeared in a Las Vegas court for the second luggage theft. After the hearing, Brinton was released on a $15,000 bond and ordered to “stay out of trouble.”

Brinton faces up to five years in prison for the Minnesota theft and up to 10 years for the Las Vegas theft.
