An Energy Department official is accused of stealing luggage from Harry Reid International Airport just weeks after facing a similar charge in Minneapolis, KTLA sister station KLAS learned Thursday.

A felony warrant was issued for Sam Brinton, deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Biden administration, sources said. The charge is for grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000, records showed.

Brinton faces charges for a similar incident at the Minneapolis airport. Brinton was on leave after charges were filed in connection with that incident, an Energy Department spokesman said in November.

Last month, the department confirmed that Brinton had been seen on surveillance footage at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in September apparently taking a bag from a claim that matched the description of luggage that had been reported missing, according to an October court filing.

The filing states that Brinton can be seen removing the tag from the bag and hastily leaving the area.

Brinton was due to appear in court on Dec. 19 in connection with the Minneapolis charges, which are punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

In addition to the theft charges, Brinton has drawn criticism for possibly fabricating parts or all of their past in interviews.

While they have alleged abuse at the hands of their parents and a conversion therapist, an article published by LGBTQ Nation noted that Brinton could not provide the name of their therapist or facility, while “every other survivor provided this information willingly.”

“The red flags regarding Brinton were overwhelming and obvious to all who cared to see them. Unfortunately, some of America’s top LGBTQ+ activists and organizations were willfully blind to Brinton’s shortcomings,” noted journalist and LGBT rights advocate Wayne Besen.

Besen also noted that journalists failed to account for Brinton’s “unquenchable desire for self-promotion” and lack of details regarding a story that sounded “too good to be true.”

“In the cringe-worthy Yahoo Life story, Brinton says, ‘I work on nuclear waste management where transparency, honesty, and trust building are so critical.’ But I guess not revealing they are in trouble for felony theft isn’t worth mentioning,” Besen added.
