Wisconsin churches on alert amid hunt for gun theft suspect


This past Tuesday, Jakubowski allegedly broke into the Armageddon Supplies gun shop in Janesville and stole about 16 high-end firearms, ABC News reported. Law enforcement has already received hundreds of tips, while the Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone with information that could help them catch Jakubowski.

Police say they received information last week that Jakubowski has been "highly agitated" about political issues and has made threats to steal weapons and use them against public officials or schools.

John McNary, the lead pastor at nearby Heartland Church, in Sun Prairie, told NBC News he saw local police doing extra patrols in the area and that his church had extra security in place on Sunday. Spoden said the auto belonged to Jakubowski. A manhunt was underway Friday, April 7, 2017, for Jakubowski, who is suspected of stealing firearms fro. Police were later called to reports of a auto fire shortly after the burglary and discovered the vehicle belonged to the suspect.

Law enforcement have released few specifics about what Jakubowski wrote - and said little about what they believe he'll do - but they're devoting more than 150 state and federal officers in what's become a national search. It is believed he acquired a bulletproof vest and other tactical gear during his time on the run. "We consider him to be armed and highly risky", Spoden said.

Authorities are paying special attention to churches, as Jakubowski reportedly mailed a 161-page anti-religious manifesto to President Donald Trump on Tuesday. Officials said they are not considering these threats "terroristic" until they know more about Jakubowski's motive.


Chief Moore of the Janesville Police Department said Jakubowski's whereabouts is unknown, and he may not even be in Wisconsin.

"Currently, investigators have followed up on approximately three hundred and twenty tips and leads and still have approximately fifty that need to be resolved", the statement said.

Loon or not, Jakubowski is cunning, as he was able to steal 18 weapons from a gun and and get away with it, and has so far managed to evade authorities for five days.

A video of Jakubowski that he had posted on Facebook was released by police. He stands roughly 5-foot-10-inches tall, with green eyes and brown hair.
