According to the Janesville Police Department, there was no specific threat to any particular church or religious group in the manifesto written by Joseph Jakubowski, but as a precaution, the Rock County Sheriff's Office and Janesville Police Department will be keeping a close watch.

Joseph Jakubowski, 32, has been missing since Tuesday, when authorities believe he stole a large quantity of handguns and rifles from the store in Janesville, 70 miles (110 kilometers) southwest of Milwaukee.

According to a friend, Jakubowski previously talked about a plan to steal weapons and use them in an attack against a school or against public officials.

Police also released a video which allegedly shows Jakubowski mailing a 161-page manifesto to President Donald Trump on Tuesday, just a few hours before the gun store burglary.

In a statement, Sun Prairie police said a man entered the Bethlehem Lutheran Church Thursday and asked questions about church services and practices, including inquiries about turning people away.

The FBI and local law enforcement agencies held a news conference about the manhunt for wanted gun shop burglary suspect, Joseph Jakubowski on Friday morning.

Jakubowski became the prime suspect in the burglary of Armageddon Gun Shop after a auto registered to his name was found burning on a rural road about three miles from the store within a half hour of the break-in. Authorities say they are still searching for Jakubowski and additional federal resources have been brought in from across the nation to aid in the investigation.

Janesville Police Chief David Moore said his department has also had multiple run-ins with Jakubowski over the years.

"We consider him to be armed and highly risky". Along with the guns, police say he may also have a bulletproof vest. Officials said they are not considering these threats "terroristic" until they know more about Jakubowski's motive.

Investigators have followed up on about 320 tips.

"It's really a long, laundry list of injustices that he believes the government and society and the upper class have put forward on the rest of the citizens", Spoden said.

A video of Jakubowski that he had posted on Facebook was released by police.

"Jakubowski is a white male, 5'10", 200 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair.
