It takes a special kind of celebrity to shoplift. Think about it. You're rich. You have the world in your hands, but this dress just looks too damn fly not to own. You need it. Should you get it? You haven't checked the price tag yet because that's something that poor people do. We already went over this; you're rich. Yeah, you get it, but instead of pulling out your wallet and buying it like the rest of the slobs walking around out there, you just steal it. You're a celebrity after all. You're basically doing them a favor by even visiting this crappy, non-famous store. We can't be certain that this is how these types of things play out, but it would be amazing if they actually did. Unfortunately, as is often the case, there's some form of illness behind the incidents on this list. Most of the celebrities here were either in a very difficult stage in their lives, battling depression or some other form of mental illness, or they're just painfully stupid.
Since celebrity status often has nothing to do with talent, something this list will most certainly highlight, some of the celebrities on this list probably don't deserve to be called celebs, but yet they are. Since they can't do anything good or respectful to give their name positive press, something like a petty shoplifting charge is enough to get the media saying their names once again. There are celebrities who steal significant items, but most often it's something small and inconsequential, which makes us shake our heads even more furiously. How dare someone rich steal. They have the ability to buy almost anything and everything you need. Why on earth would you choose to steal three chocolate bars from the Kwik-E-Mart? Yet, lo and behold, each year we see some dumb celebrity in the news for another shoplifting charge. Baffling, but this is the reality of our times. Here are 15 filthy rich celebrities arrested for shoplifting.

1 Amy Schumer – Grand Larceny
Amy Schumer might be more heavily criticized for her joke stealing these days, but she has been arrested for stealing much worse. Technically she wasn't filthy rich when she was stealing, but how do you leave grand larceny off this list. Schumer claims that when she was younger, she and her sister would steal items from department stores and then return them for cash. She did this for some time until she was eventually arrested. The police charged her with grand larceny, but when it was found out her uncle is a senator, the charges were downgraded. Schumer states, “[The cops] were like, ‘You’re lucky you have this last name.’ And they pleaded it down, to like disturbing the peace or something.”
