Two Chatham men are facing charges after stealing a television from a hotel.

A 30-inch TV, worth $500, went missing from the Travellers Motel on Queens Line on Tuesday after a guest spent the night. A 31-year-old man was arrested and charged with theft.

Officers learned another man had the stolen TV, and when they attended his home it could be seen in clear view of the front door.

A search of his residence also turned up prohibited spray. A 37-year-old man is facing numerous charges, including possession of stolen property and possession of a prohibited weapon.
