Remember Weird Klepto Sam? He’s been at it again!

Former Biden administration nuclear waste official and noted cross-dresser Samuel Brinton was arrested on Wednesday in connection with a luggage theft incident at the Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. The arrest marks the third time Brinton has come into legal peril over stolen luggage at an airport.

The latest, February 2023 luggage theft incident at Reagan National Airport (DCA) comes after Brinton was charged with stealing a passenger’s luggage at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, in July 2022 and stealing another passenger’s luggage at the baggage claim area of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on Sept. 16, 2022. Brinton would have already been dealing with courts and lawyers from the two prior luggage theft incidents when the DCA luggage theft incident occurred.

In February 2023, a Tanzanian fashion designer said she had recognized custom-designed clothing she created, lost in a March 2018 airline luggage disappearance at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C., being worn by Brinton in photos. She filed a police report in Houston in December 2022 after seeing the photos. On May 17, 2023 Brinton’s home was searched and Brinton arrested by Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
