Charges state Sam Brinton stole luggage with its contents valued at over $2,000.
A government official is accused of stealing a woman’s luggage and its contents at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Sam Brinton allegedly stole the luggage in September. The Vera Bradley baggage with women’s clothing inside was valued at $2,325, according to a complaint.
Brinton is also accused of being seen with the bag at least two times after they allegedly stole it.
The charges were filed in late October and went unnoticed in the weeks since but received wider attention this week after it was picked up by conservative media outlets.
