A source who claimed to be Brinton's neighbor told Daily Wire on Thursday, May 18, that they saw "four unmarked police" arrive at the ex Biden official's home on Wednesday before leading them away in handcuffs later that night.

"They are being held at the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit on a no-bond status as they await an extradition hearing," a spokesperson for the Montgomery Country Police Department said per New York Post.

This comes three months after Brinton appeared in court for a preliminary hearing after they were accused of taking a Vera Bradley suitcase that didn't belong to them from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport last September.

In April, Brinton also pleaded "no contest" and later accepted a plea deal for a similar charge after allegedly stealing another set of luggage from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nev. in July 2022 that contained at least $3,500 worth in clothing, jewelry and makeup.
