It might’ve seemed like a good idea at the time, but Shaun “Shizz” Miller’s plan to fool Massachusetts police did not work out in the end. As you can see above, Miller attempted to put on some crafty old man makeup — sorta like the type seen in the Jackass films — and make his way past the police. According to the BBC, it wasn’t good enough:
He walked outside in disguise and when they realised the “elderly man” was actually the 31-year-old they were looking for, they arrested him.
He had been on the run since being charged with heroin trafficking offences in April.
When officers searched the house in South Yarmouth, they found two loaded weapons hidden in a laundry basket, and nearly $30,000 (£23,000) in cash.
The ATF tweet shows that Miller’s charges were part of the larger case against the Nauti-Block street gang, resulting in several early morning raids back in April according to the Cape Cod Times:
12 people were arrested, including 8 men and 4 women. They range in age from 20 to 50. The alleged ringleaders are Denzel Chisholm of West Yarmouth and Christopher Wilkins of Hyannis. Another man was arrested on a federal firearms charge in a related federal criminal complaint…
11 of the gang members were allegedly involved in heroin trafficking, and one illegally possessed firearms, law enforcement officials said. Chisholm, his sister Shannelle Chisholm, and Tyrone Gomes are also charged with first-degree murder in the September death of Christine Ferreira.
Miller had been on the run since then and apparently thought about his next move considering his old man disguise. He just clearly didn’t think enough. No word on if he cursed those meddling kids or if there were any meddling kids in the area.
