Fugitive who robbed gun shop, sent anti-religious manifesto to Trump arrested

Joseph Jakubowski, a Wisconsin fugitive who robbed a gun shop and sent an anti-religious manifesto to President Donald Trump, has been arrested 10-days after a man-hunt was launched.

Jakubowski according to police sources was arrested while camping on a Wisconsin farmer’s property.

The fugitive who was considered “armed and dangerous,” and allegedly stole 18 firearms from a gun store near Janesville, Wisconsin, on April 4, then allegedly torched his car and fled, had been on the run ever since.

Speaking after his arrest at a news conference, Justin Tolomeo, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Milwaukee Division, said; “Today is a good day for the Wisconsin community,” adding that; “There is no other credible threat related to him in the Wisconsin community.”

However, Janesville Chief of Police David Moore said that police were concerned a mass shooting could have occurred before he was arrested.

“It ended because a citizen gave a clue,” Moore said. “We were looking out not in terms of days but in terms of weeks for sustaining this investigation. We were set up for a long-term investigation and we had the assets in place in the event … something of a tragic nature occurred.”
