Senior Citizen Arrested for Cooking Meth at Retirement Home

Jun 16, 2014

California police arrested 64-year-old Robert Short Saturday for allegedly cooking methamphetamine in his retirement community apartment.

After police pulled Short over for a routine traffic stop Saturday, a search of his car turned up four ounces of crystal meth, as well as plastic bags and an electronic scale. Police discovered another half-pound of the drug at Short's apartment in the California League-Fresno Village, along with heroin and meth lab materials.

Short now faces drug production and distribution charges.

"Just shocking someone that age would do that, but actually a perfect place to do it, right?" Fresno Police Lt. Joe Gomez told a local ABC affiliate. "Retirement village, who would suspect it going on there?"
