LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– The FBI is asking for the public’s help in finding a suspect wanted in a crime spree that included a bank robbery and a shooting. Investigators say catching Myloh Mason is a top priority because of the violent nature of his latest crime.
“We really need to catch this guy. He’s a menace to society. He’s dangerous and we need to get him behind bars,” said FBI spokeswoman Deborah Sherman.
Investigators believe Mason was involved with two others in the Nov. 18 armed robbery of a First Bank on Kipling Street in Lakewood while wearing a Scream mask. Mason is also wanted in the attempted murder in the shooting of two people that same day.
“One guy he was trying to carjack willingly gave him the keys and he still shot him four times and another person he was trying to carjack, he shot her once,” said Sherman.
The FBI has released new pictures of Mason walking around town.
“We don’t know if he’s the ringleader but we know he’s dangerous and we need to get him behind bars,” said Sherman.
