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. Miller had been indicted in April on charges of possession of heroin with intent to distribute. Police say when they ordered the man there to come outside, an elderly man emerged instead.
Some people were amazed by his disguise.
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. Authorities found 30-thousand dollars inside the home, and two loaded weapons.
Miller, of Hyannis, is being held pending a detention hearing on Aug. 31 in federal court.
