Kleptomaniac Sam Brinton Arrested For Another Luggage Heist, This Time At Washington National Airport

Last night, Sam Brinton, a former official from the Biden Administration, was arrested at Washington National Airport (DCA) for the third reported incident of suspected baggage theft.

We have written twice before about Brinton’s mischievous behavior. After revelations of his involvement in baggage theft at both LAS and MSP airports, Brinton, a 35-year-old employee, was terminated. Brinton was serving as the Assistant Deputy Secretary in the Energy Department of the Biden Administration.

MSP Luggage Pilferage

In the Minneapolis occurrence, Brinton took a bag from the luggage conveyor despite not having checked any luggage on the flight.

Minnesota alleged that Brinton on Sep. 16 was seen on airport surveillance footage removing “a navy blue hard-sided roller bag” from a baggage claim carousel — a bag similar to one reported missing that day.

Brinton “removed the blue bag’s tag and put the bag tag in the handbag they were carrying,” and “left the area at a quick pace,” the complaint said.

The woman who reported the bag missing, and identified the bag as hers in multiple surveillance videos, said the total value of items in the allegedly stolen bag was roughly $2,325, the complaint said.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport Police Department confirmed that Brinton, who identifies as genderfluid and uses ‘they,’ ‘them’ and ‘theirs’ as personal pronouns, had arrived on an American Airlines flight from Washington, and that they had not checked a bag on that flight.

When the police came to the door, Brinton stated that a genuine error had occurred.

LAS Luggage Theft

In the incident of a missing baggage report in Las Vegas, Brinton was found walking away with the suitcase where CCTV footage led the police to pull up. Thanks to a unique shirt that Brinton was wearing, which matched the shirt posted by United Airlines at gates D and C in the Washington Dulles area, a positive match was made by the Police.

According to the police report, the video footage showed that Brinton examined the label and glanced around before grabbing the bag.

“Specifically, Brinton pulled the victim’s luggage from the carousel and examined the tag. Then placed it back on the carousel, looking in all directions for anyone who might be watching, or might approach. Pulling it back off the carousel and demonstrating the same behavior by looking around before walking away with it quickly.”

Now we are in possession of part III.

DCA Luggage Theft

The luggage, which went missing at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, was reported to have occurred after incidents in Las Vegas and Minneapolis. It is believed that Brinton was linked to the third incident.

Brinton was arrested at her residence in the Montgomery County Detention Center, with her husband Kevin Reike present, and she spent the previous night there.

A statement from the police confirmed that the arrest occurred.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police executed a search warrant May 17 in Montgomery County, Maryland, in connection with allegations of stolen property in luggage from Reagan National Airport that was brought to the department’s attention in February 2023.

With the assistance of Montgomery County Police, Samuel Otis Brinton, age 35, of Rockville, Maryland, was taken into custody Wednesday pending charges of Grand Larceny.

Brinton may face a steep fine and jail time for the third incident, but he entered into a plea deal for the first two cases.


Sam Troubled Brinton has allegedly been arrested for stealing more luggage at Washington National Airport at this time. It is not yet clear what kind of faces Brinton now, as no statements have been issued from legal counsel. Kleptomania is a real thing, and I hope Brinton can learn from the rush that comes from stealing baggage, without excusing his conduct towards human beings.
