Halifax Regional Police say three Quebec men are facing several charges after being arrested at a Halifax hotel.

Police were contacted early Monday afternoon by hotel employees who reported a fraud involving a credit card that was used to book a room online.

Officers arrested the trio that night in a hotel room.

“Through the course of the investigation, police located and seized a number of brand new cell phones and accessories, store gift cards, multiple pieces of government-issued identification in various names, credit cards and a Visa gift card,” says a news release.

The charges against Emmanuel Kwakwah, 32, Allan Lochard, 20, and Lion Vernon, 27, include fraud under $5000, identity theft, identity fraud and conspiracy to commit an offence.
