The manhunt for the Wisconsin man accused of stealing more than a dozen guns and sending a threatening 161-page manifesto to President Donald Trump is over.
Joseph Jakubowski, 32, was arrested on Friday after more than 150 law enforcement officials had been searching for him for over a week.
Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said the suspect was found near Readstown in southwestern Wisconsin, where he had set up camp on a farm with firearms nearby. Authorities said he gave up “peacefully.”
A news conference on Jakubowski’s arrest will be held Friday afternoon and will include details of his charges.
Jakubowski has been accused of stealing 18 guns from Armageddon Supplies on April 4, Fox reports. He then torched his car and disappeared. A manifesto showed hatred for religion, an anti-government sentiment, and plans for violent attacks.

“We the people should be out for these sick minded people belonging to the system! We need to spill their blood!” his document read, and went on to accuse priests and churches of controlling U.S. presidents and banks.
As to the owner of the farm on which the fugitive was located, Jeffrey Gorn told the Associated Press that he had talked to Jakubowski for over an hour without realizing who he was.
