THORNTON, Colo. - The last remaining "Scream" bank robbery suspect wanted in connection to a violent crime spree in Lakewood was arrested Friday afternoon in Thornton.
Myloh Jaqory Mason, 25, was taken into custody by the FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force (RMSSTF) at a Motel 6 in the area of I-25 and 84th Avenue at around 5:30 p.m., according to an official with the FBI Denver Division.
“The capture of this dangerous felon means our community is safer, because we believe Mason would have continued committing violent crimes while he was on the run,” said FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravenelle. “I thank each of the task force members for their hard work and commitment, as they worked day and night to get him behind bars.”
Mason is believed to have robbed at least two banks last fall.
The suspect was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, attempted second-degree kidnapping, first-degree assault and second-degree assault in Jefferson County’s First Judicial District. He also faces a federal charge of convicted felon in possession of a ballistic vest.
