LAKEWOOD, Colo.  — The man who is believed to have robbed two banks in a violent crime spree was put on the FBI’s most wanted list.

The FBI announced that Myloh Jaqory Mason, was added to its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list on Thursday.

“Mason and his gang have committed some of the most violent bank robberies we’ve seen in Colorado,” said Thomas Ravenelle, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Denver Division.  “We believe he’s not going to stop and is a real danger to the community. But he can’t run forever. We will get him off the streets with the assistance of the public.”

Federal officials reported that Mason was 25-years-old.  He is described as a black man, 6-foot-2, weighing 155 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.  He has tattoos on his chest and both hands and arms.  He’s considered armed and dangerous.

On Nov. 21 authorities issued an arrest warrant for Mason for attempted 1st degree murder, aggravated robbery, attempted second degree kidnapping, first degree assault and second degree assault.

The fugitive also faces a federal charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a ballistic vest, authorities reported.  The federal arrest warrant was reportedly issued for Mason on Dec. 3.

The most recent bank robbery happened on Nov. 18 in Lakewood, Colorado where Mason and two others wore skeleton masks, took over the bank, and allegedly brutalized tellers before getting into the vault.

Both of Mason’s alleged partners during this incident, Tyrone Richardson and Miguel David Sanders, have been arrested.

“He is wanted in Jefferson County on 29 felony counts, including the attempted murder, kidnapping, and aggravated robbery of 10 innocent people during a violent crime spree in November,” said First Judicial District Attorney Pete Weir.

Mason is the 505th person to be placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list, which was established in 1950, an FBI spokesperson wrote. Since then, 473 fugitives have been apprehended and 156 of those were as a result of citizen cooperation.

A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered for any information leading directly to Mason’s arrest. Anyone with information about this fugitive should take no action themselves, but immediately contact the FBI office or a local law enforcement agency.
