FRESNO, CA (KFSN/FOX) - Fresno police arrested a 64-year-old man they said was cooking meth inside his retirement apartment complex.

Robert Short was pulled over during a routine traffic stop late Saturday.

During the stop, officers learned that Short was on supervised release for selling meth. They searched his car and found 4 ounces of meth, plastic bags and an electronic scale.

Investigators then went to his apartment and found half a pound of meth and materials for a small meth lab.

"Just shocking someone that age would do that, but actually a perfect place to do it right?" said Lt. Joe Gomez. "A retirement village - who would suspect it going on there?"

Short was booked into the Fresno County Jail on several drug charges, including possession and intent to sell a controlled substance.
