Federal Bureau of Investigation joins search for man wanted in gun thefts, school threat

Jakubowski, 32, went on the run Thursday after stealing handguns and rifles from Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, according to police.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Joseph Jakubowski's arrest.

Spoden said an associate of Jakubowski told authorities he had been "agitated" by national politics and 'recently verbalized a plan to steal guns and use them in an unspecified attack'.

Officials say they have also found a 161 page anti-government manifesto that Jakubowski sent to President Trump. Elworthy stressed that the concern was not related to the Janesville gun store robbery and manhunt.

UPDATE (WKOW) - The Rock County Sheriff's Office has now identified a man they're considering a unsafe burglary suspect wanted for questioning.

Authorities say Jakubowski is "well known to police", and that during one run-in with police, Jakubowski attempted to disarm an officer.

'When you look at the document that he wrote, it's really a long laundry list of injustices he believes that the government and society and the upper class have put forth onto the rest of the citizens, ' Spoden said, declining to offer details.

Film academy rules ineligible documentary series like 'OJ'
As always, final determination of eligible credits will be made by the Academy's Producers Branch Executive Committee. But the rules do not prohibit reasonable food or beverages being served at screening venues or adjacent locations.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation and local law enforcement agencies are assisting in the search for Jakubowski.

University of Wisconsin-Rock County and Blackhawk Technical College also are closed for the day. If you know where Jakubowski may be call the Sheriff's Office at 608-757-7911.

"We are doing that as the result of the recommendation of law enforcement", Henning said.

More than 150 local, state and federal officers have worked the case around the clock, and they've received more than 65 tips and searched about 12 locations so far.

All Whitewater public schools were placed in lockdown.

There are no viable threats to the school or staff.

But, he said, police had not seen his "antigovernment or terrorist-type" behavior. "That is a new piece to this investigation".
