DENVER -- There is now a $100,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of a suspect wanted in a series of violent crimes in metro Denver.
The FBI put Myloh Mason on its '10 Most Wanted' list. Investigators said he is the youngest of the trio that went on a crime rampage, robbing two Lakewood banks and terrorizing the community. They also said he's extremely dangerous.
It's rare for a wanted suspect from Colorado to be added to the FBI's 10 most wanted list.
But this suspect is so dangerous they've raised the reward from $10,000 to $100,000. They're afraid of what Myloh Mason, 25, might do next. His violent actions were recorded in a surveillance video.
"I want to emphasize how grave a matter this is. It's not every day that a fugitive in Colorado is placed on the FBI's 10 most wanted list," U.S. Attorney John Walsh said.
Mason is seen wearing a 'Scream' horror movie mask in the surveillance video along with two other masked men. They created their own day of horror.
"They terrorized the bank tellers, pointed guns at them, threatened to kill them if they didn't open the vaults and comply," said Thomas Ravenelle, FBI Agent in Charge. "They have no regard for human life."
Miguel David Sanders, 28 and Tyrone Richardson, 31 have been captured. But the FBI said Mason, a convicted felon with ties to Las Vegas and Florida, will stop at nothing to evade capture.
"It's important that we get Mr. Mason in to custody as quickly as possible. He is a threat to anybody who crosses paths with him," Lakewood Police Chief Kevin Paletta said.
Authorities can't say it enough. Mason is considered armed and extremely dangerous. Besides federal charges, he also faces 29 felony counts of attempted murder, robbery, assault and kidnapping.
"It reflects the extraordinary danger that Mr. Mason poses to our community and the extraordinary nature of the crimes that were committed in our community," said Jefferson County District Attorney Peter Weir.
Law enforcement authorities said under no circumstances should anyone try to contact or approach Myloh Mason. Instead, report any information about him to local police or the FBI.AlertMe
