While at one point the writer describes police and the military as terrorists, he also says he doesn't want to hurt anyone unless forced to do so.

Gov. Scott Walker tweeted his thanks to the law enforcement agents who helped in the search. "He could have just said, 'Get off my property, ' and that be it, but he didn't".

Investigators assigned to the Jakubowski case were sent to that location along with tactical support to assist local authorities in determining whether the suspicious individual was related to the manhunt. Authorities made contact with the person, later identified as Jakubowski, and took him into custody without incident.

Authorities arrested 32-year-old Joseph Jakubowski at 6 a.m. Friday near Readstown, Wisconsin.

Jakubowski had been wanted for questioning in the April 4 theft of multiple weapons from the Armageddon Gun Store in Janesville, the arson of Jakubowski's vehicle, and alleged messages detailing his intention to threaten public safety.

All known family, friends and associates of Jakubowski cooperated with law enforcement, officials said. A press conference at Kickapoo High School is expected this morning about the situation. "I think he knew what he was facing", Vernon County Sheriff John Spears said at a briefing, who said the suspect had been surrounded by 100 to 125 law enforcement officers.

Gorn says he didn't realize he was the subject of the manhunt. "I shook his hand twice", Gorn said.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office says Jakubowski wrote a 161-page manifesto in which he detailed a long list of grievances against the government and spoke of plans to launch attacks with the 18 firearms he allegedly stole.

JANESVILLE, Wis. (WREX) -- Jessy Urfer said she feels uneasy in her own neighbor since police started searching for Joseph Jakubowski.

Investigators said they analyzed the manifesto and discovered anti-religious views.

Monday is the fifth day of the search and Rock County Sheriff's Office Commander Troy Knudson said they are widening their search.

Located under a tarp he was using for a tent, Jakubowski looked disheveled and it appeared that he hadn't slept in some time, Spoden said.

Local media also indicated that he sent a 161-page manifesto to the USA president in which he threatened a "revolution" and violence in schools. A thermal imaging camera showed Jakubowski was in the tent, he said. The weapons taken from the gun store have not been recovered, so he is considered armed and unsafe, which has many in the community concerned.
