Whitewater man reported near school with gun arrested peacefully
WHITEWATER—An hours-long SWAT standoff in Whitewater ended Friday night with the peaceful arrest of a Whitewater man who police say was acting erratically with a gun near Whitewater Middle School.
Soon after the lockdown order, Whitewater police said the situation was unrelated to the search for Joseph A. Jakubowski of Janesville.
Neighbors, 'relative' offer insights about Joseph Jakubowski
Monday afternoon, a woman who pulled a car into Jakubowski's last known residence at 811 Glen St. told The Gazette she would speak only on condition of anonymity because of safety concerns. She would only identify herself as a “relative” of Jakubowski's.
The woman painted a picture of Jakubowski as a man who'd been struggling to find equilibrium after she said he'd lost his job at a local Best Buy store then hurt his back doing a pick-up job roofing houses.
“He lost his job, and he couldn't find another job,” the woman said. “Couldn't find work. Couldn't get any help. Couldn't get food stamps. Couldn't get nothing. Hurt his back. What do you do?”
Despite those troubles, the woman said, Jakubowski had a history—even recently—of trying to help other people.
UPDATE: Details of gun shop burglary revealed
JANESVILLE—The Janesville man being sought in a nationwide hunt wrote a note of apology to a gun shop owner before he burglarized a gun shop April 4, according to a criminal complaint filed in Rock County Court on Tuesday.
The note was found in the bedroom Joseph A. Jakubowski had occupied, according to the complaint.
The complaint also describes the burglar's actions, as seen in surveillance footage from the Armageddon Supplies gun shop on Highway 14 just west of Janesville the night of April 4.
One of the long guns he took was a fully automatic M-16, the complaint says.
An inventory later showed 18 guns and two silencers missing, according to the complaint. Authorities said earlier that about 16 guns were taken.
The gun shop alarm sounded at 8:40 p.m., and an officer was on scene one minute later, the complaint states.
The complaint also states the burglar was leaving the building at 8:40 p.m., although it's not clear whether the time on the surveillance camera was in sync with the dispatch time.
In any case, the burglar was not in the shop when officers entered after 8:48 p.m., the complaint says.
The complaint says Jakubowski's sister... showed an investigator several items of paperwork" she found in his bedroom, including “what appeared to be the draft of an apology letter” to a gun shop owner, according to the complaint.
“In the letter, the defendant explained that he wanted to purchase the guns to protect himself and his family, but as a felon, he was not allowed to do so," the complaint states. “The defendant apologized to the gun shop owner for the theft of weapons and thanked the gun shop owner for protecting the 2nd Amendment rights of the citizens,” the complaint states.
Knudson would not elaborate on the 161-page document that Jakubowski apparently sent to President Donald Trump.
Authorities said earlier that the document—also referred to as a manifesto—contains anti-government sentiment. It's not clear whether the document contains threats of violence.
“To release some of those details may impact the investigation, and that is the reason those are being held so closely,” Knudson said.
Information that is released is intended to help people in the community take precautions, he added.
“I can say that primarily that manifesto is directed toward government, and (there is) very minimal information in there about religion. And yet I can't say anything else about what may or may not have been contained in that manifesto," Knudson said.
The capture was conducted without incident.
Jakubowski appeared in federal court in Madison at 3 p.m. Friday, wearing jeans and a tan-colored T-shirt over a same-colored long-sleeved shirt. His feet were shackled, but his hands were not cuffed.
Bond was not set at this court appearance.
If a grand jury decides to indict Wednesday, April 19, Jakubowski will appear in federal court in Madison at 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 25, for an arraignment.
The Vernon County Sheriff's Office received a report at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday of a suspicious person on a farmer's property on Estes Road near Readstown, about 40 miles southeast of La Crosse.
The FBI's Tolomeo grinned broadly when asked about the tip, but he declined to say whether any other tips had pointed authorities in the same direction.
