Manhunt ends, Joseph Jakubowski captured in Vernon County

Manhunt ends, Joseph Jakubowski captured in Vernon County

Jakubowski's flight gained national attention after it was learned he mailed a 161-page manifesto to the White House in which he states the government has wronged him and called the government a gang of terrorists.

"Authorities released a cell phone video last week showing Jakubowski mailing his manifesto at the post office".

Jakubowski, an alleged gun shop robber who reportedly sent President Donald Trump a manifesto with anti-religious and anti-government messages, was taken into custody Friday morning after a 10-day manhunt.

A Janesville man at the center of a nationwide manhunt was arrested at 6 a.m. Friday south of Viola, according to the Vernon County and Richland County sheriff's offices.

Comedian Charlie Murphy Dead at 57 After Battle With Leukemia
In case you didn't know, Charlie Murphy was also the voice of Stinky in the Sesame Street sendup, "Kneehigh Park". The comedian then followed the post with: "One to Sleep On: Release the past to rest as deeply as possible".

The odyssey began April 4 in Janesville, Wisconsin, 70 miles southwest of Milwaukee, where the fugitive allegedly stole arms from a gun shop. The person was taken into custody without incident and identified as Jakubowski, the Rock County Sheriff's Office said.

In portions of the manifesto obtained locally by NBC5 News Jakubowski threatens violence against the government and refers to health insurance taxes and religion as examples of the government trying to brainwash its citizens. Gorn, a retired school counselor, says the two talked cordially for almost an hour, including about Jakubowski's anger with society.

Jakubowski will make an initial appearance at 3 p.m. Friday in federal court in Madison.

A Vernon County Deputy Sheriff said it's still unclear how Jakubowski ended up in the area without a vehicle or a cellphone. He also threatened unspecified attacks.

Acting U.S. Attorney Jeff Anderson said Jakubowski could be indicted on additional charges. A criminal complaint issued earlier charged Jakubowski with three counts: Burglary- Arming Self with a Dangerous Weapon; Felony Theft-Special Facts; and Possession of Burglarious Tools.

The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that the suspect left an apology for the gun store's owner before he stole the weapons. Jakubowski had been on the run since April 4th, when he broke into Armageddon Supplies in Janesville.
