Police find 'elderly man' is 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. Nearly $30,000 in cash and two loaded guns were found in the house.
Miller, of Hyannis, is being held pending a detention hearing on Aug. 31 in federal court. It wasn't immediately known if he's represented by a lawyer.
