Samuel Brinton, the Biden administration’s nonbinary deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition for the Department of Energy (DOE), must have thought he’d hit the jackpot when he (allegedly) stole his second piece of luggage, this time, at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport.
Turns out, the luggage he lifted contained — in addition to $850 in clothing and $500 worth of the makeup he so dearly loves — $1,700 in jewelry, according to a police report obtained by Fox News Digital.
As BizPac Review reported, Brinton, the nation’s first genderfluid person in federal leadership, is now wanted on felony charges of grand larceny. The warrant was issued on Thursday.

Fox News Digital cites a declaration filed on Wednesday by a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) detective, which reveals that a woman returning to Las Vegas from Washington, D.C. on July 6 quickly discovered that one of her checked bags was missing.
She reported the lost bag, and, upon reviewing security camera footage, police observed “a white male adult wearing a white T-shirt with a large rainbow-colored atomic nuclear symbol design” taking a bag that matched the victim’s description from the carousel and high-tailing it out of the airport.
Unable to identify the culprit, police closed the investigation.
Then came the viral media reports of Brinton’s alleged theft of a piece of luxury luggage in a Minnesota airport.

The officer who was forced to close the Vegas case “immediately recognized” Brinton “as the suspect pertaining to this case,” Fox News Digital reports.
Not only were police able to ascertain that Brinton and the July 6 victim were on the same flight, but they also found a selfie of the sticky-fingered narcissist on Instagram wearing the same rainbow-colored shirt emblazoned with the atomic symbol as he was on the security footage video.
“Brinton demonstrated several signs of abnormal behavior while taking the victim’s luggage which are cues suspects typically give off when committing luggage theft,” the LVMPD detective’s report explains. “Specifically, Brinton pulled the victim’s luggage from the carousel and examined the tag.”
“Then placing it back on the carousel, looking in all directions for anyone who might be watching, or might approach,” it continued. “Pulling it back off the carousel and demonstrating the same behavior by looking around before walking away with it quickly.”
“Brinton only having checked one piece of luggage, which Brinton had already claimed from the carousel, had no reason to be examining and taking any other pieces of luggage,” the report alleges.
In conclusion, the declaration found there was probable cause that Brinton committed grand larceny with intent to deprive the owner permanently of property valued at $3,670.
Had there been just a little less make-up in the bag, Brinton would not be facing up to a decade behind bars.
His take was valued at just $170 over the cutoff limit for a lesser charge in Nevada, which considers grand larceny of items valued over $3,500 a category B felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
In the Minnesota case, Brinton — who was again caught on camera in September taking a suitcase worth $2,325 from a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport baggage carousel — is scheduled to appear at a state court hearing later this month, where he will face similar charges.
Not long after Brinton was charged in October, the DOE placed him on leave. No explanation was given.
