"Elderly man" turns out to be young fugitive in Massachusetts

BOSTON -- Authorities say an “elderly man” found at a Massachusetts home actually was a 31-year-old fugitive wearing a disguise.

Police went to a house on Cape Cod Thursday looking for Shaun Miller, who’d been a fugitive since April when he and several others were indicted on heroin distribution charges. Police say when they ordered a man there to come outside, an elderly man emerged.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says when officers realized the man was Miller, they pulled off his “realistic disguise” and placed him under arrest.

Two loaded weapons and $30,000 in cash was found in the house, CBS Boston reports.

Miller is being held pending a detention hearing scheduled for later this month.
