The FBI has released new photos of one of the suspected "Scream" masked robbers who targeted a First Bank in Lakewood last year. 

Myloh Mason is the third and only suspect who remains on the run following a violent crime spree on Nov. 18, 2015. He's also on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. 

"We're very concerned. The concerns are the degree of violence that was demonstrated during the bank robbery," said FBI assistant special agent in charge, Bob Evans. 

During the robbery, Mason, along with suspects Miguel Sanders and Tory Richardson, directed three bank employees into the vault of the bank, where an affidavit statesthe crooks filled bags with $50,822 in cash.

Following the escape, they're accused of shooting one man and taking his van, and later shooting a woman and beating up the woman's mother while trying to steal their car. The crime spree ended in Sheridan.

FBI officials also believe Mason is responsible for another bank robbery in Lakewood back in September.

"If Myloh Mason is watching this what do you want him to know," asked Denver 7 reporter Jennifer Kovaleski.

"I want him to know he should turn himself him, that if he's using friends family or associates to hide or to harbor him -- he's putting them in danger and I want him to know that we will continue working tirelessly to put him behind bars," responded Evans.

Mason is wanted for attempted murder. He's considered armed and dangerous. Authorities initially offered a $10,000 reward, but the FBI increased the reward to $100,000.

Officials with the FBI said he also has ties in Oklahoma, Florida, Nevada and California. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324).
