FRESNO, Calif. — Police and residents of a retirement community were stunned that a 64-year-old Northern California man arrested during a traffic stop was accused of cooking methamphetamine inside his apartment at the facility for seniors.

“Just shocking someone that age would do that, but actually a perfect place to do it, right? Retirement village, who would suspect it going on there?” Fresno police Lt. Joe Gomez told KFSN-TV on Sunday, the day after Robert Short of Fresno was taken into custody.

Police pulled over Short in a routine traffic stop in Fresno late Saturday and learned that he was on supervised release for selling meth. While conducting a search of Short’s car, officers found 4 ounces of crystal meth, plastic bags and an electronic scale, Sgt. Brian Valles said.
