The manhunt continues in Wisconsin and nationwide for Joseph Jakubowski, who police say robbed a gun store and mailed a 161-page manifesto to President Donald Trump last week that threatened to use the stolen guns at schools or against public officials.

On Tuesday, Jakubowski allegedly robbed the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, Wisconsin, about 70 miles southwest of Milwaukee, then abandoned his car and set it on fire, according to Fox News. Jakubowski is accused of stealing 16 guns, including high caliber handguns and at least two semi-automatic assault rifles. Police think he also has a bulletproof vest and helmet.

Police said there was no specific threat against any schools or churches, but patrols were increased Sunday and will continue to be elevated because of anti-religious material in the manifesto and language about using the guns at schools. Many schools in the area are on spring break this week and are not open, Fox reported.

Jakubowski, 32, has a police record, including many misdemeanors and a 2008 felony conviction for trying to steal a gun from a police officer, NBC News reported.

Authorities have already followed up on 400 leads and tips, the sheriff’s department said, and the FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to Jakubowski’s capture.

“Basically he’s angry at all government officials,” Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said in a news conference Friday, NBC News reported.

One church, Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Sun Prairie, canceled its services Sunday after a man who looked like Jakubowski came and asked questions about the church, NBC reported. Authorities later confirmed that the man was not Jakubowski.
