Sam Brinton, the former Biden Energy Department official who identifies as "non-binary," has been released on bond after spending two weeks behind bars on Grand Larceny charges.

Brinton, 35, of Rockville, Maryland was taken into custody on May 17 as a "fugitive from justice" over allegations of stolen luggage that occurred at Reagan National Airport in February, marking the third time he has been accused of lifting others' personal luggage at airports.

On Thursday, a judge released Brinton on a $5,000 bond after the former Biden official appeared before a magistrate, who was extradited to Arlington County in Virginia.

Brinton, who acted as Biden's former deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposal in the Office of Nuclear Energy, was fired from the Biden administration after being charged in two other unrelated baggage theft cases which have since been closed.

In October 2022, Brinton was charged for allegedly stealing a Vera Bradley bag in September at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

He was later captured on video taking luggage at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. Brinton was charged, pleaded no contest and agreed to pay $3,670.74 in restitution for the luggage, jewelry and makeup, as well as undergo a mental health evaluation, NY Post reports.

Brinton's most recent arrest as a "fugitive from justice" stemmed from accusations of baggage theft dating back to 2018, when Brinton took luggage belonging to a Tanzanian fashion designer.

Brinton was later seen in pictures allegedly wearing her one-of-a-kind designs that had been in the suitcase, according to the designer.

The spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, James Johnson, said airport 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."

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