Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies are searching for a 32-year-old man who stole more than a dozen weapons from a gun shop in Janesville, Wisconsin, last week, as authorities have reason to believe the man may be planning to carry out an attack.
A man believed to be Joseph Jakubowski recently mailed a 160-page anti-government manifesto to President Trump expressing grievances with the government, as well as anti-religion sentiments. Additionally, on Tuesday, Jakubowski broke into the Armageddon Gun Shop and stole 16 rifles and handguns. After the burglary, authorities found Jakubowski’s vehicle nearby, which had been set on fire.
An acquaintance told authorities Jakubowski previously spoke of wanting to steal weapons and carry out an unspecified attack.
“Basically he’s angry at all government officials,” said Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden. “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.”
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Jakubowski, who is also in possession of body armor and should be considered armed and dangerous. He is described as a white male with green eyes and brown hair, who stands 5’10” tall and weighs around 200 pounds.
