A $10,000 reward is now being offered by the FBI to aid their search for Joseph Jakubowski, the suspect who mailed an anti-government manifesto to President Trump, as well as stole more than a dozen firearms from a local gun shop. Local police in Wisconsin is now on full alert.
Joseph Jakubowski is a 32-year-old individual who has previous felonies in the past. Back in 2008, he attempted to steal a gun from a police officer and has committed more misdemeanors in the past.
Last Tuesday night, he broke into the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville and took several high caliber handguns, a military-style helmet, at least two semi-automatic assault rifles, and a bulletproof vest, according to Fox News. Police immediately responded to the scene of the crime and found Jakubowski's car on fire nearby, 30 minutes later.
His anti-government manifesto to Donald Trump was mailed to the White House as shown in the video released by the sheriff's office last week. An affiliate of Jakubowski filmed the video and is now also a person of interest by the police. The video showed Jakubowski saying, "There it is you see it's getting shipped. Revolution! It's time for change."
Security in local churches in Wisconsin also intensified as the 161-page manifesto contained some strong unreligious sentiments, and several schools are also on high alert as he threatened to unleash his rage on schools and public officials.
NBC News reports that a press conference was initiated by the police last Friday following the investigation. The police said that Jakubowski was very angry about the government and all that it stands for and that he will stage an unspecified attack soon. Over 400 tips and leads are being followed up by the investigators, and they are hopeful they can arrest Jakubowski before he can cause any damage.
