In Wisconsin, over 150 law enforcement officers (of the local, state, and federal varieties) are searching for Joseph Jakubowski, the suspect in a gun shop burglary. Police say that Jakubowski not only allegedly stole over a dozen high-caliber rifles and handguns from the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, but he also sent a manifesto, addressed to President Trump, to the White House.
Jakubowski’s reported 160-page anti-government screed has prompted schools and churches to go on high alert for its statements against religion, although he reportedly did not make threats against a specific person or institution. The manifesto does label federal officials as “agents of the 1% who enslave and keep the population down.” Despite hundreds of leads, law enforcement has yet to capture Jakubowsk and are asking for assistance:
Investigators have already followed up on around 400 tips and leads, according to the sheriff’s department statement. The FBI offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to Jakubowski’s capture.
“Basically he’s angry at all government officials,” Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said at the press conference on Friday. “Whether it’s the president or whether it’s local officials or whether it’s law enforcement, he has a dislike for anyone that has authority or governmental power.”
Jakubowski allegedly posted a video to his Facebook page that showed him mailing the manifesto to Trump. Shortly after the gun shop burglary, police located Jakubowski’s car, which had been torched in what they believe was an act of arson, and the suspect has seemingly disappeared without a trace. Police warn that Jakubowski — who is 5’10 and 200 pounds with brown hair and green eyes — is obviously “armed and dangerous” and likely protected by body armor. Further, he’s “well-known” to Janesville authorities and has a criminal record that includes over 30 traffic-related offenses.
