Fria Tider reported in February about Sam Brinton and his new position. He was also highlighted in other media as the first “non-binary” person in a leading federal government post in the United States.

The 34-year-old LGBTQ profile is now suspected of stealing a woman's suitcase at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. He has been suspended from his job at the Department of Energy.

Sam Brinton was caught on airport surveillance cameras in September stealing the blue bag, which had contents with an estimated value of nearly $35,000.

He initially denied stealing the woman's clothes, but then admitted to taking the bag, according to the police. However, he claimed that it had happened by mistake.

If he is convicted, he risks up to five years in prison or a fine of up to SEK 100,000 – or both, writes the Daily Mail.
