New Top Ten Fugitive.

“Mason and his gang have committed some of the most violent bank robberies we’ve seen in Colorado,” said Thomas Ravenelle, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Denver Division. “We believe he’s not going to stop and is a real danger to the community. It’s important for the safety of the community that we apprehend him as soon as possible,” said Special Agent Russ Humphrey, fugitive coordinator for the FBI Denver Field Office’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force. Along with two accomplices—who are in custody—Mason is believed to have robbed at least two Lakewood banks within the last four months, and his tactics have become more aggressive.

Mason and two others wearing costumes allegedly shoved guns in the faces of bank employees and said the tellers would be killed unless they opened the bank vault. On Nov. 21 authorities issued an arrest warrant for Mason for attempted 1st degree murder, aggravated robbery, attempted second degree kidnapping, first degree assault and second degree assault.

Pursued by police after fleeing the bank, Mason and his partners shot two innocent citizens during a home invasion and a carjacking. “The robbers clearly seemed desperate,” Humphrey said. “It was lucky that the two injured civilians, one of whom was shot four times, weren’t killed.” He added that the scenes played out near schools—which were locked down for hours—and a community recreation center frequented by parents with young children. “We do not accept this kind of ruthless violence in our communities,” Humphrey said. “Adding Mason to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list is an indication of how serious we are about apprehending him.” Mason is 6-foot-2 and weighs approximately 155 pounds. If you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Mason, please call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324), or contact your nearest FBI office, law enforcement agency, or U.S.
