Three men were caught illegally buying liquor for an underage decoy during a sting operation in Moreno Valley, a sheriff’s sergeant said today.
Ten liquor stores were targeted for Saturday’s day-long effort, and they all complied with laws prohibiting the sale of liquor to minors, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Holmes said.
But three people outside the businesses did not follow the laws that prohibit buying alcohol for requesting minors, he said.
Alexander Ownen, 21, of Long Beach, and Carlos Maldonado, 40 and Froylan Felix Del Villar, 44, both of Moreno Valley, were cited for allegedly buying alcohol for a minor, Holmes said.
