Police in Massachusetts, have released a photo of a young man, who almost got away from them while he was disguised as an elderly man.

Shaun Miller, 31, of Hyannis, was arrested after police surrounded a residence in South Yarmouth, where he was believed to be staying.

However, police only found an elderly man, who did not match their description.

Authorities were looking for a much younger person, who they said was suspected of drug trafficking.

Police wrote on Facebook: “Upon further investigation, officers determined that the ‘elderly man’ was in fact Miller, and at that point, officers pulled off Miller’s realistic looking mask and placed him under arrest.

“A subsequent search of the residence revealed two loaded weapons hidden in a laundry basket and nearly $30,000 in cash.”

Attorney James Cipoletta, who is representing Miller, said that his client denies any involvement and will plead not guilty.
