Schools close amid Wisconsin manhunt for gun theft suspect

They have had contact with Jakubowski before including an instance where he tried to take a weapon from an officer.

Schools in Rock County are closed on Friday because of the man hunt. The manifesto cited anger with all government officials, upper class and authority.

Spoden said an associate of Jakubowski told authorities he had been "agitated" by national politics and "recently verbalized a plan to steal guns and use them in an unspecified attack".

Police also said they had learned that he acquired a bulletproof vest and helmet.

The manhunt continues for 32-year-old Joseph Jakubowski -a Janesville man wanted for stealing firearms from a local gun shop Tuesday.

Authorities said the man had been identified and was not involved in the Janesville gun shop robbery.

Jakubowski became the prime suspect in the burglary of Armageddon Gun Shop after a vehicle registered to his name was found burning on a rural road about three miles from the store within a half hour of the break-in. His vehicle was found on fire about 20 minutes later, with evidence showing it was an arson fire. Police said he fled the scene of the burglary. They've had to deal with him dozens of times but they say what he's accused of doing now does not follow his criminal patterns in the past.

The manifesto was anti-government and anti-law enforcement.
