A female reported that her bag was missing when she went to retrieve it at baggage claim.

After reviewing surveillance video, law enforcement says Brinton stole the bag and even removed the luggage tag.

Two days later, surveillance video again caught Brinton returning to the airport with the bag, which is worth over $2,000.

Brinton currently serves as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition at the Energy Department.

Brinton has also worked to raise awareness of sexual intolerance and transphobia.

“It’s official. As of June 19th, I now serve my nation as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy in the Department of Energy,” Brinton tweeted.

“As one of if not the very first openly genderfluid individuals in federal government leadership, I was welcomed with open arms into the Department of Energy all the way up to the Secretary whom I shared the stage with in a Pride month celebration panel just today,” Brinton said.

From Western Journal:

Brinton also has a background as a “non-binary drag queen” and is a transgender activist, notably associated with the Order of Perpetual Indulgence, “a non-profit group who dress up as nuns to raise awareness of sexual intolerance and transphobia,” the Daily Mail reported…

According to Alpha News’ reporting, the police asked Brinton about the bag and he admitted that he had taken it but that his clothes were in it.

“If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual. That was my clothes when I opened the bag,” Brinton reportedly told the police.

Alpha News reported that Brinton is scheduled for a hearing on Dec. 19 in Hennepin County, Minnesota.
