"It has been a little frustrating that we have not found this individual yet, and we'd sure like to see this situation resolved".

Police discovered a burned vehicle registered to Joseph Jakubowski just a short distance away from the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, WI., where Jakubowski allegedly stole 16 assault weapons and handguns.

Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden has said Jakubowski threatened to attack schools and public officials in the 161-page handwritten manifesto that he mailed to President Donald Trump.

Janesville Police Chief David Moore said Tuesday that while the screed had anti-religion and anti-government themes, "there are no specific targets and no one specific place that we can take our resources".

Authorities believe this manifesto was written by Joseph Jakubowski, a man who is now the subject of a national manhunt.

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

Investigators said some media has obtained a partial copy of Jakubowski's manifesto. Jakubowski was researching survivalist tactics and may have had "survivalist equipment". Police say a person was recently arrested for that, and the incident was unrelated to Jakubowski: The suspect apparently had a stolen rifle and "for no apparent logic" threw it in the bushes outside a school to hide it.

Officers saw Cozart moving his hands around in the vehicle and was also held at gunpoint with a stun gun, the report said. UPDATE: The New York Daily News has confirmed, via an arrest affidavit, that Keef was charged with DUI.

Over 150 officials from local, state and federal agencies have joined the hunt for Jakubowski, the statement said, adding that he may have tried to alter his appearance by shaving his head and facial hair.

But law enforcement has as increased presence with deputies at the Rock County Courthouse as well as at the local college and technical colleges at the request of those institutions, according to Spoden.

They have warned that the fugitive is considered armed and unsafe and the public should not approach him.

Knudson would not comment on a possible threat to the president, saying he has not been authorized to release any analysis of the manifesto. An apology letter to the gun store owner was found where Jakubowski had been living, according to court documents. Direct sightings of Jakubowski should be called into 911 immediately. After that, authorities say he set fire to his vehicle.

Jakubowski also claims he's an artist, but says the government regulations destroyed his passion.

The FBI is offering up to a $20,000 cash reward for information that leads to the successful apprehension of Jakubowski.
