Joseph Jakubowski, the Wisconsin man accused of stealing more than a dozen guns and sending a threatening 161-page manifesto to President Donald Trump, has been arrested after a manhunt that stretched on for more than a week, investigators confirmed on Friday.
Officers caught him near Readstown in southwestern Wisconsin where he’d been camping out, Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said in a news release. Law enforcement received a call Thursday night about a suspicious man on a farmer’s property there, and tactical officers moved in on Friday morning, Spoden said.
Jakubowski, 32, gave up “peacefully,” investigators told reporters. The sheriff said charges against the suspect were coming and a news conference was planned for Friday afternoon.
Jakubowski was accused of stealing 18 guns from Armageddon Supplies, a store near Janesville, on April 4 before he apparently torched his car and vanished, Fox 6 reported. The manifesto bearing his name showed his hatred for religion, a long list of grievances against the government, and a desire to carry out unspecified attacks.
