GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4)– The man known as the “Scream” bank robbery suspect knew he was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List.
Myloh Mason appeared before a judge in Jefferson County Court on Tuesday morning for his alleged role in six bank robberies. He remains in custody at the Jefferson County Detention Center on $500,000 cash bond.
Mason talked to CBS4’s Rick Sallinger from jail where he said he knew he was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. He was on the run for nearly two months before he was captured.
“You were on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, were you aware of that?” Sallinger asked Mason.
“Yes, sir,” Mason responded. “A lot of false assumptions man, a lot of false assumptions man. You all have a good day,” he said and ended the conversation.
Investigators tracked down Mason to the Motel 6 at Interstate 25 and 84th Avenue in Thornton and a SWAT team surrounded the building last week. They called for Mason to surrender over a loud speaker and he surrendered without resistance about 5:30 p.m. Friday.
Investigators believe Mason was involved with two others in the Nov. 18, 2015 armed robbery of a FirstBank 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 other suspects in the crime spree are Miguel David Sanders, 28; and Tyrone Javonne Richardson, 31. They have been arrested and remain in custody.
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.
As Sallinger was leaving the jail he witnessed Mason skipping through the jail block.
