Jakubowski indicted in federal court on gun charges

The Janesville man suspected of robbing a gun store and sending a manifesto to the White House was indicted in federal court Wednesday.

Joseph Jakubowski, 32, led authorities on a manhunt after police said he burglarized a gun shop April 4 near Janesville.

The sheriff’s office said he stole 18 firearms and said in a 161-page manifesto he planned to carry out attacks on schools and public officials.

The indictment filed Wednesday charges Jakubowski with stealing 18 firearms and two silencers from Armageddon Supplies in Janesville. It also charges him with being a felon in possession of the firearms and silencers.

Jakubowski made an initial appearance in federal court April 14. He will remain in federal custody pending his arraignment on April 25.
