Manifesto suspect stole machine gun, drafted apology to gun store, prosecutors say

The Rock County Sheriff's Office and Janesville Police Department released a press release on behalf of all the agencies involved in the Jakubowski investigation thanking the community for their support. "It has been a little frustrating that we have not found this individual yet, and we'd sure like to see this situation resolved".

Dozens of police have been searching for Joseph Jakubowski since the gun store was robbed in Janesville on April 4, about 60 miles southwest of Milwaukee.

Investigators have obtained a 161-page manifesto that Jakubowski mailed to Trump.

The main priority has to be capturing Jakubowski safely, Knudson added.

Anyone with information about Jakubowski's whereabouts is asked to call the Rock County Sheriff's Office at 608-757-7911 or the FBI at 800-CALL-FBI.

Police are now saying that the picture with the tattoo showing the word "Boy" or "Bos" is no longer current as Jakubowski covered this tattoo with a newer tattoo. Moore says people planning to attend Good Friday and Easter services this weekend should be cautious, but recognize security steps address Jakubowski's continuing status as a fugitive.

But law enforcement has as increased presence with deputies at the Rock County Courthouse as well as at the local college and technical colleges at the request of those institutions, according to Spoden.

Jakubowski is considered "armed and dangerous" and was in possession of a bullet-proof vest and helmet, police have said.

Moore says it is still unclear what triggered Jakubowski to escalate from an adult history of traffic and largely, lower level offenses, to the concerning mindset displayed in the manifesto.

Jakubowski is accused of breaking into a Wisconsin gun store last week and stealing 18 firearms, including a fully automatic M16 rifle.

"Stop whatever you're doing, whatever you're thinking, put everything down and call 911", he said. "Religion is what created slavery and. government is an illusion of religion".

But investigators do not have a copy of the document that WTMJ TV says it has, said Cmdr. Law enforcement found Jakubowski's burnt vehicle nearby and have investigated more than 400 leads in his pursuit.

The FBI on Tuesday also doubled its award for information leading to the successful location of Jakubowski's to $20,000.

In parts of the incomplete document- the handwritten portion starts at page 93 and every other page is missing - Jakubowski rants about a system of greed that he says dooms the populace to slavery and has destroyed his dreams.
