Sydney grandfather caught selling drugs from his retirement village

Sydney Grandfather nabbed selling drugs from his retirement village

Former bus driver, Gary Halford, was arrested last week after fellow residents at the Mountainview Retreat Retirement Village became suspicious upon noticing Mr Halford being visited multiple times at odd hours of the day and night. 

According to reports, Crime Stoppers received multiple tip-offs regarding activities at Mr Halford’s unit which prompted police to launch an investigation in June.

The accused was arrested during a traffic stop in the suburb of Baulkum Hills where police officers allegedly seized cannabis, ice, and a mobile phone. 

On the same day, police also executed a search warrant on the pensioner’s retirement village unit where they located more cannabis, LSD tablets, a baton and a variety of electronic devices.

Halford was granted strict conditional bail and he is slated to appear at Parramatta Local Court next Wednesday, September 8, where he faces several drug and weapons-related charges.
