The suspect, Joseph Jakubowski from Janesville, Wisconsin, allegedly broke into the Armageddon Supplies gun shop on Tuesday and made off with at least 16 firearms including “high-end handguns and rifles” according to police.
He fled the scene, set fire to his car and has not been seen since.
“Basically, he’s angry at all government officials, whether it’s the president or local officials or whether it’s law enforcement. He basically has a dislike for anyone that has authority or governmental power. We consider him to be armed and highly dangerous.”
Police also released a video which allegedly shows Jakubowski mailing a 161-page manifesto to President Donald Trump on Tuesday, just a few hours before the gun store burglary.
The letter seems to be addressed to the president and Jakubowski can be heard saying “Ya’ll have no idea what’s about to happen,” just before he sticks stamps to his letter.
Another man, filming Jakubowski says “You’ll never forget this face, ever,” as they both exit the post office. Just before the man deposits the letter in a nearby post box he turns to the camera says “Game Time,” and then smiles.
“It’s just an overview that he feels that government and law enforcement, in particular, are acting as terrorists and enslaving the people and creating this environment that he finds unacceptable,” the Sheriff added.
Since the incident began, investigators have responded to well over two hundred leads and still are working on approximately seventy of them.
A $10,000 reward has been offered by the FBI for information leading to the suspect’s capture.
