Luggage Thief Sam Brinton Arrested In Maryland as ‘Fugitive from Justice’

'I saw the images... '

(Headline USA) Sam Brinton, the embattled former senior Biden Energy Department official who was charged with stealing women’s luggage on at least two occasions, was arrested again this week as a “fugitive from justice.”

Brinton was taken into custody in Rockville, Maryland on Wednesday, according to the Daily Wire.

“Four unmarked police showed up last night, they would not let his spouse Kevin leave. After about an hour Sam Brinton was escorted out in handcuffs,” a person who claimed to be Brinton’s neighbor, said.

He is currently in jail and being held without bond, according to county records. A judge has since ordered him to be extradited to Virginia on grand larceny charges.

Brinton pleaded “non contest” to misdemeanor theft last month after he stole $3,670 worth of items in a woman’s suitcase from the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. He has also pleaded guilty to stealing a traveler’s luggage worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Shortly after Brinton was charged for both the Minneapolis and Las Vegas thefts, a Texas woman came forward on social media to accuse Brinton of similarly stealing her luggage from the Washington-Reagan Airport in D.C.

Asya Khamsin shared several photos of Brinton wearing her designs on Twitter, saying they were her “custom designs” that were in a suitcase she lost in the D.C. airport in 2018.

“I saw the images. Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018,” Khamsin told Fox News. “He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”

Khamsin said her luggage vanished from the D.C. airport on March 9, 2018 after she flew into an event during which she was supposed to put her clothes on display. Because her baggage disappeared, she was unable to participate in the event, she told Fox.

It is not clear whether Brinton’s extradition to Virginia is related to Khamsin’s allegations.
