Police Track Leads in Search for Wisconsin Gun Theft Suspect

Authorities are following up on numerous tips as they search for a man suspected of stealing firearms from a Wisconsin gun store after threatening to carry out an unspecified attack and sending an anti-government manifesto to President Donald Trump.

JANESVILLE (WKOW) - As of Saturday morning local, county, state and national law enforcement are continuing their search for Joseph Jakubowski.

Jakubowski, 32, is wanted for breaking into a gun shop called Armageddon Supplies in his home town of Janesville, about 70 miles southwest of Milwaukee, on Tuesday, when several handguns and rifles were stolen, according to the Rock County Sheriff's Office.

Jakubowski's 161-page manifesto, which he mailed to Trump on April 4, includes grievances against government and personal angst toward anyone or anything other than natural law or rule. Because of this, as a precautionary measure, the Rock County Sheriff's Office and Janesville Police Department will be increasing patrols in the area of churches and places of worship on Sunday, April 9.

An alert was issued Monday for Wisconsin schools, citing a threat in the letter by Jakubowski to "unleash the stolen weapons" inside the buildings.

The source had also insisted at the time Kylie doesn't want her family to steal her thunder on the show, so they will have limited involvement.

"Investigators have followed up on approximately 320 tips and leads and still have approximately 50 that need to be resolved", Sheriff's Commander Troy Knudson said Sunday in a news release.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Jakubowski's capture.

Cops discovered a auto belonging to Jakubowski near the gun shop early last week. A burned vehicle registered to him was found nearby.

Another man, filming Jakubowski says "You'll never forget this face, ever", as they both exit the post office.

The questions included inquiries about practices of turning people away from services, Sun Prairie police Lt. Brian Teasdale said.

"We're going to constantly revisit that individual and see if they can think of something else that may have been forgotten and what was the motive and some of those type of things", Sheriff Robert Spoden told the news station.

A number of school districts in Rock County and beyond either canceled classes Friday or were on a "soft" lockdown, in which classes continue but doors to school entrances and classrooms are locked and students aren't allowed to go outside.

Janesville Police Chief David Moore said his department has also had multiple run-ins with Jakubowski over the years.

Investigators said they analyzed the manifesto and discovered anti-religious views.
