64-Year-Old Man Allegedly Built a Meth Lab in His Retirement Community
It's important that retirees take up some kind of hobby — canasta, golf, making phone calls — to give purpose to their remaining years. 64-year-old Robert Short's alleged hobby? Cooking meth in his retirement community apartment in Fresno, Calif.
According to the AP, Short was arrested after being pulled over for a routine traffic stop on Saturday. Cops found meth in his car, so they went back to Short's apartment in California League-Fresno Village. There they found half a pound of meth, heroin, and the materials you need to build a meth lab.
His neighbors are shocked, as you would be. "It's shocking, I would never guess that anything like that would go on at a senior citizen village," said one to KFSN-TV. Fresno police Lt. Joe Gomez was also surprised. "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?" he mused.
Short was already on supervised release for previous meth sales when he was arrested.
