An "elderly man" found at a house in Massachusetts in the US was actually a 31-year-old fugitive wearing a disguise.

Police went to a house on Cape Cod on Thursday looking for Shaun Miller, of Hyannis, who had been a fugitive since April when he and several others were charged with heroin distribution.

Police said that when they ordered a man there to come outside, an elderly man emerged.

The US Attorney's office said that when officers realised the man was Miller, they pulled off his "realistic disguise" and placed him under arrest.

Nearly 30,000 dollars in cash and two loaded guns were found in the house.
