Search continues for WI man FBI says stole guns, threatened public officials

He apparently mailed a 160-page, anti-government manifesto to President Donald Trump.

Officials continue to look for a Wisconsin man who may target public officials with guns he stole in south-central Wisconsin.

Joseph Jakubowski, 32, is suspected of burglarizing the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, Wisconsin, on April 4, where he took a "large quantity of high-end handguns and rifles," the Rock County Sheriff's Office said.

Officials note Jakubowski has been "highly agitated" regarding a "variety of political issues," and he had made threats to steal weapons to use against public officials or at an unspecified school. In his manifesto, Jakubowski also "expressed some anti-religious views," but not to any specific group or church, a news release said.

NBC News reports Jakubowski mailed the 160-page, anti-government manifesto to President Donald Trump.

Around 150 officials from several agencies, including the FBI, and officials from the Twin Cities and Chicago, are assisting in the investigation to find Jakubowski, the Rock County Sheriff's Office said Sunday morning. Investigators have followed up on around 425 tips and leads as of Monday morning, an updated news release says.

The FBI is also offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to his arrest.

Jakubowski is described as being white, 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds. He has green eyes and brown hair, and is considered "armed and dangerous."

If you see Jakubowski, don't approach him and call 911 immediately. If you have a general tip about him, you could call 1-800-225-5324.
