PHILADELPHIA — The son of actress Cybill Shepherd has been charged with stealing from fellow airplane passengers during a cross-country flight.

Police say 22-year-old Cyrus Shepherd-Oppenheim was arrested in Philadelphia on Tuesday around midnight after the United Airlines plane arrived from San Francisco.

Police say witnesses identified Mr. Shepherd-Oppenheim as the man who allegedly stole cash, a digital camera, a leather makeup case and a small travel bag from two passengers’ carry-on luggage.

Mr. Shepherd-Oppenheim has been charged with theft and receiving stolen property.

He is the son of “Moonlighting” star Cybill Shepherd and chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim, who divorced in 1989.

Mr. Shepherd-Oppenheim lives in Sebastopol, Calif. It was not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
