Manhunt Intensifies for Joseph Jakubowski, Man Who Allegedly Stole Guns and Mailed Manifesto to Trump

Police in Wisconsin ramped up security at local churches on Sunday as the manhunt continued for a 32-year-old fugitive who is accused of stealing more than a dozen weapons from a gun store and mailing an anti-government manifesto to President Donald Trump.

Over 150 officers from local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies were searching for Joseph Jakubowski, who they say allegedly broke into the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, Wisconsin, on Tuesday and stole 16 high-caliber rifles and handguns.

Police said Jakubowski is considered “armed and dangerous” and was in possession of a bullet-proof vest and helmet.

Authorities said they were increasing security presence at local churches because of “anti-religion sentiment” contained within a 160-page manifesto they believe was written by Jakubowski and sent to Trump at the White House.

Police said at a press conference on Friday that Jakubowski had been “highly agitated” by national politics recently and an associate of his claimed the wanted man had spoken of a plan to steal guns and carry out an unspecified attack.

Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, canceled its services on Sunday after a suspicious man who looked like Jakubowski stopped by the church on Thursday asking questions, according to a statement from the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.

John McNary, the lead pastor at nearby Heartland Church, in Sun Prairie, told NBC News he saw local police doing extra patrols in the area and that his church had extra security in place on Sunday.

“We were taking extra precautions, just in case,” he said.

The Sun Prairie Police Department told NBC affiliate WMTV on Sunday afternoon that the man who visited the Bethlehem Church late last week was not Jakubowski and was not related to the police’s investigation.

McNary also said he had spoken with an officer who said they did not believe the man was Jakubowski.

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.

Police released a video last week that the suspect allegedly posted on Facebook appearing to show a man mailing an envelope with his manifesto addressed to Trump.

“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.”

Authorities identified the person who filmed the video as an associate of Jakubowski and a person of interest in the investigation, Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden told reporters Sunday.

“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,” Spoden said.

On Tuesday night, police responded to a report of a car fire near the burglarized gun shop and discovered the burned vehicle belonged to Jakubowski.

He has one felony conviction for attempting to steal a gun from a police officer in 2008, and a history of misdemeanors.

Jakubowski is described as 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds with green eyes and brown hair.

For the video, the person who took the video, what do we know about that person?

15;52;07;20 RS: That person has been interviewed and continues to be a person of interest uh with us and the Janesville police department and uh with the FBI and so um they’re going to be somebody that we’re going to continue to talk to to see if we can ascertain whatever information they had they have been cooperating with us, which is obviously something that we’re very happy about, um but 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.

15;52;36;17 BM: Is it a friend? Do you know the relationship?

15;52;38;12 RS: um we know it was an associate

15;52;41;24 BM: And not under arrest at this point. [RS: no]

Will Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump Live To See Next January 20th?

 

Do not take this article wrong, I am not for the harming of anyone on Earth, not even these two folks but it is a question that needs to be considered as possibilities. Personally the only way I could find myself voting for Ms. Hillary this November 1st is if her Republican opponent is Ted Cruz. The single biggest reason I won’t vote for her, even over her being an habitual liar, is Benghazi. If you were ever in the military or are from a family of Vets you know why, she and President Obama are flat-out guilty of leaving our people behind without even making an effort to come to their rescue. From a military standpoint she as Secretary of State is directly responsible for the deaths of four of our people that she and President Obama swore an oath to protect. She lied, she failed, they are dead because of her lack of action to protect them. I do believe that if she wins the Democratic nomination at their convention this summer that somewhere between that time and the November 1st general election, or if she wins the election, that before she can take office on January 20th that some former or current military person will end her because of her guilt in Benghazi.  Do I want her to be killed, no I don’t, but I do hope that she is doing like Mr. Trump and wearing bullet-proof vests everywhere she goes in public. Hillary Clinton has made millions of enemy’s here in America. Do I believe that if she is the winner in November that she will live to see January 20th, 2017, my guess is she has less than a 50/50 chance. I know this sounds cold, and it is, cold hard truth. I personally do not want anything to happen to her even though I do not want her to ever step into the Oval Office again. I don’t want the woman dead but putting her in federal prison with hard labor till the day she dies is a very good idea. Maybe we could get her a cell right next to George W Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld whom should be in there for their war crimes.

 

Now to Mr. Trump, I believe the same for him concerning the November 1st elections and the January 20th date. Not for the same reasons as Ms. Hillary but because of the fact that many millions of people from backgrounds, nationalities, and races, hate the man with a passion. Mr. Trump has admitted that when he is on the campaign trail that he has been wearing a bullet-proof vest which honestly is just good common sense. I do not want Mr. Trump to be harmed at all, but he really needs to be careful. I honestly just have my doubts that either one or both will not get to see January 20th, 2017 because of the level of hate both have created for themselves. I as an Independent voter do wish that Mr. Trump would not have his bouts of acting like a third-grade bully and would act like an adult more often. The Congress/Senate, the Constitution, and the Supreme Court will keep most of Mr. Trumps wilder ideas from ever happening yet at the same time we the American people are sick to death of both the Party’s and with politicians. Who knows, if no one decides to take Mr. Trump out he may make a great President. My question though is, could he possibly be worse than the bought and paid for trash that permeates D.C. right now? As far as I am concerned the leaders of the RNC and the DNC should be in cells right next to Ms. Hillary and George W.
