Police say charges are pending under provincial liquor rules after officers seized some 4,400 cans of beer from a Waterloo home.

Investigators allege an unofficial student group was planning to sell the brews during a St. Patrick's Day party, but didn't get a permit.

They say the group was allegedly selling tickets for the event through social media.

Police say charges related to alleged illegal sale of alcohol will be laid under Ontario's Liquor Licence Act.

The force says they are taking "a firm but fair approach" to infractions during celebrations of the boozy Irish holiday.
