A man caused more than $2,000 worth of damage to motel rooms after becoming angry at the lack of toilet paper, according to a police report.

The report said that the man caused $1,000 worth of damage to a ceiling and a further $1,000 worth to carpets in two rooms at the Charlottetown Manor in Charlotte on Monday.

He is also accused of causing $20 worth of damage to bathroom lights and $70 worth of damage to a hairdryer.

The story was reported by CBS Charlotte.

The police report said the damage included graffiti, without saying what was written or drawn.

'Suspect became irate'
The security guard, who reported the alleged crime, "stated that the listed suspect (tenant) became upset because he ran out of toilet paper in his room," the report said.

"The listed suspect became irate and walked upstairs to a vacant room, which was being renovated. The suspect damaged the listed properties by clogging a toilet causing water damage to the listed property," it added.

"The suspect then went back to his room and damaged additional property by physical force," the report said.
