Police in Wisconsin are looking for a 32-year-old fugitive, identified as Joseph A Jakubowski, who allegedly threatened to cause harm to public officials at schools and also stole a cache of weapons Tuesday night from the Armageddon Gun Shop on Highway 14 in Janesville, My Stateline.com reports.
FOX News broke the story four days ago and it has since been reported by most major news outlets. At about 2:30 PM last Thursday, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office assigned deputies to the Montessori, Consolidated, Yahara, Rock County Christian and Parkview Schools Thursday afternoon as a general precaution but not because of a specific threat.
Jakubowski is still at large today, and anyone with information should call Janesville police at (608) 755-3100 or Janesville Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 756-3636.
On Thursday morning, a suspicious person was seen near Lincoln Elementary School with a long gun, and although that man may not have been Jakubowski, schools were placed on a soft lockdown as a result. The man is described as a white male, 6 feet tall with a thin build. He was said to be wearing round glasses and driving a white, 4-door car.
The FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation, and several local law enforcement agencies are now actively searching for Jakubowski across the region.
FOX News also reported today that Jakubowski had written a 161-page manifesto, addressed to President Donald Trump, in which he said he would unleash his stolen weapons on schools and public officials. The document also expressed anti-religious views, according to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.
