FRESNO (CBS/AP) — Fresno police have arrested a 64-year-old man suspected of cooking methamphetamine in his apartment at a retirement community.

KFSN-TV reports Robert Short was pulled over as part of a routine traffic stop late Saturday and officers found meth in his car.

Investigators then went to Short’s apartment in the California League-Fresno Village, where they found a half pound of meth, heroin and materials for a meth lab.

Police say the street value of the drugs Short was carrying is close to $1,700. Officers also found scales and baggies in his car for the sale of meth.

Short’s neighbors at the senior housing facility say despite the tight-knit community there, they didn’t know Short, who kept to himself.

Short had been on supervised release for previous drug sales.
