A 29-year-old man faces charges for allegedly stealing a megaphone on a Saskatoon-bound WestJet plane Monday night.

Saskatoon police say they were called by staff at Saskatoon's John G. Diefenbaker International Airport about a passenger who stole the device from the galley of the plane.

Police boarded the plane after it arrived from Toronto at about 9 p.m. and arrested the suspect.

The Saskatoon man, who hasn't been identified, faces charges of theft under $5,000 and mischief over $5,000 because his alleged antics delayed the flight.

The man was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.

WestJet said there was no risk to the safety of the other passengers and crew.
