The 22-year-old son of Cybill Shepherd was arrested at Philadelphia's airport Tuesday after he allegedly tried to rob sleeping passengers on an overnight cross-country flight.

Cyrus Zacharia Shepherd-Oppenheim was flying from San Francisco to Philadelphia about 1 a.m. ET Tuesday when he was accused of stealing a digital camera, U.S. currency, a leather cosmetics bag and another small piece of luggage, according to published reports.

Philadelphia police say Shepherd-Oppenheim, of Sepastopolm, Calif., has been charged with two counts of theft for unlawfully receiving stolen goods after he allegedly rifled through fellow passengers’ suitcases while they were asleep.

The 59-year-old actress’s son was taken into custody after his flight landed in Philadelphia.
