‘Scream Robber’ on FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list captured in Colorado
THORNTON, Colo. — Myloh Jaqory Mason, one of the FBI’s 10 most-wanted fugitives, was captured in Thornton, Colorado, the agency announced.
KDVR reports 25-year-old Mason was taken into custody without incident by SWAT personnel at a motel Friday evening.
Mason was sought in connection with two bank robberies and shootings in the Denver area in September and November.
He could face charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, attempted second-degree kidnapping, first-degree assault, and second-degree assault, the FBI said.
During one bank robbery, three suspects wore skeleton masks similar to one worn in the “Scream” movies. The FBI said the suspects allegedly shot two people during their getaway.
The other two suspects had already been captured.
“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,” FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravenelle told KDVR. “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.”
