Schools close amid Wisconsin manhunt for gun theft suspect

According to Fox News, Spoden said Jakubowski's manifesto revealed disrespect for public officials and law enforcement, calling them "agents of the one percent to enslave and keep the population down". Though, as you probably already gathered, authorities described him as "highly risky". "Additionally they have searched approximately 12 different locations", Sheriff Spoden added. They have had contact with Jakubowski before including an instance where he tried to take a weapon from an officer.

Investigators say Jakubowski has made no specific threat. He basically has a dislike for anyone that has authority or governmental power.

Officials had received almost 425 tips as of Monday morning.

Subsequently, Jakubowski has also been seen hanging around the Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

Authorities promptly notified local law enforcement officials and schools of the report, and nearby school districts implemented unspecified safety measures, reports

The Rock County Sheriff's Office is offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to his arrest.

Police say a surveillance picture shows him stealing 16 guns from a Janesville store on Tuesday. Police were later called to reports of a auto fire shortly after the burglary and discovered the vehicle belonged to the suspect. The fire was determined to be arson.

A massive manhunt was underway Sunday in search of a "highly-dangerous" Wisconsin man who USA authorities said robbed a gun shop and sent a lengthy manifesto to President Donald Trump.

"My son said he [Jakubowski] was very quiet, didn't say a lot", Sheriff Spoden said about Jakubowski.

The "highly agitated" 32-year-old Jakubowski is still at large, and is said by police to be "armed and risky".

Federal investigators from across the country have come to Janesville to help in the search for Joseph Jakubowski, the man accused of stealing a cache of guns and making threats against schools and politicians.

"The suspect is said to be heavier-set, roughly 5'10" in height, with brown hair and green eyes.

He is considered armed and risky.

"I started kind of having a panic attack and I couldn't sleep last night, because just knowing that he could possibly be right in my area where my daughter lives", Urfer said.
