After being on the run for nine days, a fugitive wanted for a gun store burglary in Janesville is now in custody. In this April 4, 2017 frame grab from a surveillance video released by the Rock County Sheriff's Office, Joseph Jakubowski makes a purchase at a gas station in Janesville, Wis.

Jakubowski was accused of stealing 18 guns from Armageddon Supplies, a store near Janesville, on April 4 before he apparently torched his auto and vanished, Fox 6 reported.

Sheriff's officials say a man suspected of stealing firearms from a gun store and sending President Donald Trump an anti-government manifesto has been arrested in southwestern Wisconsin.

Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden described his campsite as primitive, consisting of only a tarp, and said Jakubowski looked disheveled and like he had not slept in some time.

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

Investigators are also working with local officials, church leaders and federal, state and local law enforcement officers in the case.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, the Vernon County Sheriff's Office received a report of a suspicious person on a farmer's property on Estes Road near Readstown, Wisconsin.

"I can tell you that, in Janesville, it is a very good Friday".

During the manhunt, police charged Jakubowski with three felonies: burglary to arm himself with a unsafe weapon, theft and possession of burglarious tools, according to a criminal complaint. In the manifesto, he made non-specific threats towards schools and public officials using the stolen weapons.

Knudson said the White House has received the manifesto.

He said as long as Jakubowski is still on the loose, he remains a threat. "So far, what Joseph has done is correctable, and we encourage him to do the right thing for his community and his family".

The Federal Bureau of Investigation had recently doubled its award for information leading to the suspect's arrest to $20,000.
