Three people are believed to be responsible for the crimes, and the alleged identity of one of those who is still at large has been released.
Myloh Jaqory Mason, 25, is now wanted on a slew of potential charges including attempted first-degree murder and aggravated robbery. According to court documents, Mason has been tied to at least six bank robberies all similar in nature to last week’s robbery. Lakewood police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
Lakewood police and the FBI, who are working jointly on the case, said Mason should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
According to Steve Davis with Lakewood police, Tyrone Javonne Richardson, 31, was identified and arrested Tuesday afternoon.
“Richardson was taken into custody in the 1000 block of Sable Boulevard at about 2 p.m. … in connection with the robbery, carjacking and shootings as well as a probation violation,” Davis said in a statement.
A third suspect in the robbery and subsequent crimes was arrested after he was allegedly found hiding under a school bus the day of the crime spree. A booking photo of Miguel David Sanders, 28, was released on Tuesday morning.
The spree started on Wednesday with a bank robbery at the 1stBank at 1940 South Kipling Parkway. In video released on Tuesday morning two of the robbers are seen wearing green skeleton masks and a third is wearing a mask similar to the ones seen in the movie “Scream.”
The robbery is suspected of being related to a September bank robbery in Lakewood in which suspects were also wearing Scream masks.READ MORE: Selfless Colorado Woman, Angela Zivkovich, Donates Both A Kidney & Part Of Her Liver To Strangers
In Wednesday’s crime authorities said the suspects locked employees and customers in the bank’s vault and made off with approximately $50,000. With the money was a GPS device that police used to track the suspects.
After leaving the bank, police say they ended up in an SUV that got stuck in mud near a ditch as they tried to cross a field.
Investigators say they then stole a man’s car at his home and shot him several times in the process.
“The trio drove to the city of Sheridan where they again attempted to steal a vehicle this time from two women, both of whom were physically assaulted, one was shot,” Davis said.
Sanders was found during an extensive search that followed the crimes. Police say he was hiding under a school bus that was parked outside Sheridan High School.
“The actions of those three people that day went far beyond dangerous,” Davis said.
