Shaun Miller, a fugitive, who had been pretending to be a 70-year-old man, has finally been captured. Friday, Massachusetts police were led to a home on Cape Cod where they hoped to find Miller.
Miller, 31, had been on the run from authorities since April of 2016 after he and other gang members were linked to drug trafficking. When the police knocked on the door, they were baffled to find an elderly man, who claimed to be Shizz.
The law enforcers felt that something was wrong, so they started quizzing the old man, who quickly confessed that he was indeed Mr. Miller wearing a very convincing disguise.
Police ripped it off, and Miller told them that he paid more than $2,000 for the realistic mask. He purchased the old man mask to be unrecognizable and to walk freely in the streets.
A search of Miller’s home led to the discovery of $30,000 in cash and a laundry basket with two loaded guns. Miller was indicted on charges of possession of heroin with intent to distribute. Massachusetts police shared a picture of the mask and gave the following explanation on the investigation:
“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.”
According to local media:
“The murder victim was a woman who who had been targeted after testifying against a member of the Nauti gang in 2011.”
There is a lot of reaction on social media regarding the creepy mask.
