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 Shepherd-Oppenheim as the man who allegedly stole cash, a digital camera, leather make-up case and a small travel bag from two passengers' carry-on luggage.

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

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

It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
