Police said a minor would call the accused to order alcohol and the accused would then buy the liquor from an LCBO store for them at a profit.

On Monday, police charged 60-year-old Toronto man Hung-Wai David Wong with supplying/selling liquor to a person apparently under 19 and selling liquor with no license.

He is scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on April 18.
