A 64-year-old Fresno man was jailed Saturday after police found a small meth lab in his retirement village apartment near Fresno Pacific University, police Sgt. Brian Valles reported.
Two officers on the department's Violent Crimes Impact Team stopped a car near Olive and Rowell avenues about 7:45 p.m. for a vehicle code violation. They learned the driver, Robert Short, was on supervised release for selling methamphetamine, Valles said.
When officers searched Short's car, they found four ounces of crystal meth, plastic bags and an electronic scale, materials Valles said are consistent with meth sales.
The officers then searched Short's home in the 2000 block of South Willow Avenue in the California League retirement village. There they found more meth, heroin and a small meth lab, Valles said. Officers recovered a half pound of crystal meth with a street value of $1,700.
Short was booked to the Fresno County Jail on several drug charges, Valles said.
