Samuel Brinton, the non-binary Biden administration official accused of multiple baggage thefts at two separate airports, is reportedly no longer with the Department of Energy.

A DOE spokesperson told Fox News Digital on Monday that Brinton “is no longer a DOE employee.” The DOE also told Fox, “He was not a Biden official.”

It was not immediately clear whether Brinton had resigned or been fired.

According to a police report obtained by Fox News Digital, Brinton, who served as the DOE’s deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposal since June, faces up to 10 years in prison for allegedly stealing luggage in Minnesota and another bag in Nevada.

Brinton allegedly stole a suitcase with an estimated total value of $3,670 on July 6 from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. Police also charged Brinton with stealing another suitcase worth $2,325 from a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport (MSP) in September.

In light of the revelations, Brinton was placed on leave by the DOE.
