An armed fugitive wanted on drug trafficking charges was arrested while disguised as an elderly man in Massachusetts.

According to the Department of Justice, officers surrounded Miller’s residence in South Yarmouth, Mass., on Thursday and ordered Miller, disguised as the elderly man, out of the house.

Officers determined the “elderly man” was actually Miller before pulling off his disguise and placing him under arrest.

Two loaded weapons hidden in a laundry basket and about $30,000 in cash were discovered when officers searched the residence.

Miller had been a fugitive since he was charged for possession of heroin with intent to distribute in an indictment in April.

Following his arrest he was detained and scheduled for a hearing in U.S. District Court in Boston scheduled for Aug. 31.
