Investigators tracked Mason to the motel and a SWAT team surrounded the building. They called for Mason to surrender over a loud speaker and he surrendered without resistance.

Investigators believe Mason was involved with two others in the Nov. 18, 2015 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.

“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 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. He also faces a federal charge of convicted felon in possession of a ballistic vest.

The suspects led police on a pursuit through several cities in the Denver metro area including Lakewood and Sheridan.

According to court documents, Mason has been tied to at least six bank robberies, which are all similar in nature to the Nov. 18, 2015 robbery.

Mason remains in custody at the Jefferson County Detention Center. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

Mason was the 505th person to be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on Dec. 17, 2015. The reward for tips leading to his arrest was set at $100,000 but since a public tip did not lead to the arrest, the FBI says no reward money will be paid out.
