The former Biden nuclear official who was axed late last year after they were caught red-handed in a string of luggage thefts was arrested at home this week, police confirmed.

Samuel Brinton, 35, was taken into custody at their home in Rockville, Maryland at 10 p.m. Wednesday, the Montgomery Country Police Department told The Post Thursday.

Arrest records show that Brinton – who is non-binary and uses they pronouns – was arrested on the 700 Block of College Parkway as a fugitive from justice.

“They are being held at the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit on a no-bond status as they await an extradition hearing,” the MCPD spokesperson explained.

The investigation is being spearheaded by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.

Someone claiming to be a neighbor of Brinton and Reike told The Daily Wire on Thursday that “four unmarked police showed up” at their residence last night, and escorted Brinton away in handcuffs an hour later.

News of Brinton’s alleged arrest comes one month after they pleaded no contest to charges stemming from the theft of a woman’s luggage at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport in July 2022.

In exchange for the plea deal, Brinton was ordered to pay the woman back and given a 180-day suspended jail sentence.

Days later, they Brinton agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation as part of an adult diversion program at a hearing stemming from similar charges related to a theft at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in Sept. 2022.
