Police recovered women’s designer clothes allegedly stolen by Sam Brinton, a former Biden official who identifies as non-binary, during a search at their home.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department confirmed that the clothes were returned to their owner, Tanzanian fashion designer Asya Khamsin, after they were discovered at Brinton’s Maryland house while law enforcement officials executed a search warrant.
Khamsin had reported her bag, which contained the stolen clothing articles, missing at Ronald Reagan National Airport in 2018.
According to MWAA spokesperson Crystal Nosal, the police department returned the victim’s property and retained photos of the evidence for prosecution.

Brinton, a disgraced former Biden administration nuclear energy official, has faced multiple arrests in connection with stealing women’s luggage at airports.
The 35-year-old gained attention as one of the federal government’s first “non-binary” officials but was fired from the Office of Nuclear Energy at the Department of Energy in December after multiple allegations of luggage theft came to light.
Previous cases involved Brinton stealing a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase from a Minneapolis Airport in September 2022, as well as another woman’s suitcase from a Las Vegas airport in July of the same year.
According court documents the stolen suitcases and their contents had a combined value of over $9,000 in high end items.
Brinton got a slap on the wrist in the sentencing for the Minneapolis incident.
The member of the D.C. chapter of anti-Catholic drag group, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, was ordered to get a mental health evaluation, write an apology letter to the victim, give back the stolen property, and do a paltry three days of community service.

Brinton didn’t bother to waste the court’s time for the incident in Las Vegas, which came on the heels of the first arrest.
After the absurd act made national news, eagle-eyed airport cops were able to positively identify the former deputy assistant secretary in a theft at Harry Reid International Airport.
Brinton pled no contest to stealing the luggage and received a 180-day suspended sentence, along with a restitution order of $3,670.
A third arrest came on May 17, when cops swarmed Brinton’s home and tore it apart in search of Khamsin’s designs.
The publicity surrounding Brinton’s gender identity as a government official and luggage swiping tendencies ultimately let to a break in Khamsin’s years old case, when she saw them her wearing stolen clothes at events.
“I saw the images. Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018,” Khamsin told Fox News Digital. “He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”
To add insult to injury, the pilfered frocks were the reason Khamsin flew to Washington, D.C. in the first place.
The one-of-a-kind designs were supposed to be showcased at an event, but due to the theft, she was unable to present them.
She reported the incident to the police and Delta Air Lines at the time, but her bag and collection of designs were never recovered.
Over four years later, when Brinton went viral for having sticky fingers, she saw him wearing her creations and decided to file a police report in Houston, where she currently resides.
Houston police have since referred the case to the FBI, and in the meantime, Khamsin has filed a civil lawsuit against Brinton.
The former government employee has been charged with felony grand larceny, and the preliminary hearing for this case has been postponed until December.
