LOS AN­GE­LES — Au­thor­i­ties say a hunched-over “el­derly man” who met po­lice in front of 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 US At­tor­ney’s of­fice says when of­fi­cers re­al­ized the man was Miller they pulled off his “re­al­is­tic dis­guise” and placed him un­der ar­rest. Au­thor­i­ties told Fox 25 Bos­ton that Miller’s dis­guise cost $2 000 and he wore it ev­ery­where in an at­tempt to throw po­lice off his trail.

In­side the home, the Cape Cod Re­gional SWAT Team found two loaded hand­guns in a laun­dry bas­ket and nearly $30,000 in cash, the sta­tion re­ported.the in­dict­ment was the re­sult of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Nauti street gang on Cape Cod. Other mem­bers of the gang have been charged with firearms vi­o­la­tions, drug traf­fick­ing and even a 2015 mur­der, Fox 25 Bos­ton. pros­e­cu­tors said the mur­der vic­tim was a woman who had been tar­geted af­ter tes­ti­fy­ing against a mem­ber of the Nauti gang in 2011.

Po­lice say they found fugi­tive Shaun Miller (31) at a Mas­sachusetts home dis­guised as an ‘el­derly man’.
