A search for a wanted man at a Johnson City motel led police to a sawed-off shotgun early Saturday morning, resulting in an additional charge.

Clint Chandler, 37, 116 Spring City Dr., Lot No. 44, was arrested after police went looking for him at Motel 6 at 207 E. Mountcastle Drive, room 239, to serve a domestic assault warrant.

Police found Chandler with a sawed-off shotgun with a barrel less than 13 inches long, according to a news release.

Along with the domestic assault charge, police charged Chandler with possession of a prohibited weapon. He was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $11,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
