During a recent press conference, the Janesville authorities announced that the search efforts for the individual who has robbed a gun store, looting multiple weapons on Tuesday night have intensified. The police official suspect that the man who robbed the weapons shop and made away with at least 16 handguns and the tactical vest is the same one who mailed an anti-government manifesto at the White House.

According to the authorities, the manifesto was placed in a plain white envelope, and have the message ‘Game Time’ written all over it.
Before staging the Janesville gun store heist, Jakubowski was seen at a Mobil gas station on Saturday.

Out of an abundance of precaution, the Janesville Police Department has requested the help of several state agencies including the ATF, FBI, and the Rock County Sheriff’s Department in an attempt to track down and to apprehend Jakubowski.
Moreover, according to a Janesville Police Department spokesperson, due to the man’s radical views on religion and places of worship, all churches from Wisconsin all being kept under close surveillance. Since the state-wide manhunt for the individual has been initiated, the authorities have received approximately 200 tips from various citizens who claimed to see the man.

As for Jakubowski’s views on religion and places of worship, it would appear that the authorities received several anonymous tips placing the suspect in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. A churchgoer declared that, on Sunday, just before closing time, an individual fitting Jakubowski’s description entered the church and began to ask peculiar questions.
Subsequently, Jakubowski has also been seen hanging around the Bethlehem Lutheran Church. According to an eyewitness, on Thursday, just before closing time, a man looking very much like Jakubowski entered the church and started asking the same peculiar questions. In addition, it would appear that the man was very interested in discovering how to turn people away from the church.
The authorities cautioned the local population to refrain from entering into contact with the suspect, as he is considered armed and extremely dangerous.
