Police in California arrested a 64-year-old man suspected of cooking meth at his retirement home community.

Robert Short was pulled over as part of a routine traffic stop in Fresno when officers found meth in his vehicle, Fresno TV station KFSN reported.

Police searched Short's apartment at the California League-Fresno Village, where they found a half-pound of meth, heroin and materials for a meth lab.

Officers also found scales and baggies in his car for selling meth, the Fresno Bee reported.

Neighbors at the retirement community said they didn't know Short, and that he largely kept to himself.

Short had been on supervised release for previous drug sales.
