Drug Bust in Florida Retirement Village Uncovers Golf Cart Chop Shop
Who knew a retirement community could have such a dark, seedy underbelly?
Police raided a home last week in The Villages in Florida, which is the world's largest retirement community. They were looking for drugs, and they found them, specifically a whole meth operation.
