US manhunt underway for alleged gun thief who wrote manifesto to Trump


CHICAGO: A massive manhunt was underway Sunday (Monday in Manila) in search of a “highly-dangerous” Wisconsin man who US authorities said robbed a gun shop and sent a lengthy manifesto to President Donald Trump. Some 150 local, state and federal police officers and personnel were searching for Joseph Jakubowski, 32, who on Tuesday allegedly stole some 16 “high-end firearms” from a gun store in Janesville, Wisconsin and set fire to a car nearby, according to Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden. Spoden said the suspect had written a 161-page long anti-government manifesto, which he had mailed to the White House. Police obtained a copy. Spoden described the manifesto as “a long laundry list of injustices that he believes the government and society and the upper class have put forth onto the rest of the citizens.” He added that the suspect had acquired a bulletproof vest and a helmet and was considered “armed and highly dangerous.”
