Police have confirmed the arrest of a former nuclear official from the Biden administration who was fired last year for being caught in a series of luggage thefts. The arrest took place at the individual’s home earlier this week.
According to the Montgomery Country Police Department, Samuel Brinton, aged 35, was apprehended at their residence in Rockville, Maryland, on Wednesday at 10 p.m. The incident was reported to The Post on Thursday.
Brinton was reportedly apprehended in Rockville, Maryland, as per county records. According to a police spokesman, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, which serves as the primary law enforcement agency at both Washington, DC airports, conducted the arrest on Thursday.
According to Shira Goff, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County Police Department, Sam Brinton was apprehended with the assistance of Montgomery County Police. This information was reported to Fox News Digital. According to the speaker, the responsibility for this lies with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police.
According to Goff, Brinton was apprehended at their residence on College Parkway around 10 pm yesterday. The individuals are currently in custody at the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit and are being held without bail as they await an extradition hearing. According to sources, the available information has been exhausted and there is no further update at this time.
An eyewitness who identified themselves as Brinton’s neighbor reported that Brinton was taken into custody approximately one hour after the arrival of four plainclothes police officers.
In a recent development, Brinton, a non-binary gender-fluid individual who made headlines last year after being appointed to the position in charge of nuclear waste policy in the Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy Administration, has been arrested. This arrest comes a month after Brinton managed to avoid jail time in two separate cases related to luggage theft in Nevada and Minnesota.
In October, Brinton was charged by the police for allegedly stealing a traveler’s luggage worth $2,325 from a baggage carousel located in Minneapolis Street. On September 16, Paul arrived at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C.
In early December, Brinton was accused by Las Vegas prosecutors of grand theft of an item valued between $1,200 and $5,000. Brinton has been charged by the police for allegedly stealing a suitcase worth $3,670 on July 6, 2022, at Harry Reed International Airport in Las Vegas. According to the user, the bag held a total of $3,050 worth of items, including $1,700 worth of jewelry, $850 worth of clothes, and $500 worth of cosmetics.
According to sources, Brinton is facing a potential sentence of up to 15 years due to accusations of committing two thefts. In both instances, the judges in charge determined that incarceration was unnecessary.
A Houston-based Tanzanian fashion designer has accused Brinton of wearing her custom designs that were packed in luggage that went missing in 2018. The accusation was made in February. The case was turned over to the FBI by the Houston police.
