The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information that will lead to the capture of Jakubowski, who is considered extremely risky.

Investigators believe Jakubowski stole a large quantity of handguns and rifles from a gun shop Tuesday night in Janesville, about 70 miles southwest of Milwaukee.

Jakubowski is suspected of sealing an automatic assault rifle and other guns and had made threats against schools and public officials.

"Mr. Jakubowski is known well to officers of the Janesville Police Department and the Rock County Sheriff's Office", said Janesville Police Chief David Moore. Heads up to gun shops - if you don't want to get targeted by anti-government nutjobs, don't name your store "The Armageddon Gun Shop".

When asked whether authorities considered Jakubowski a terrorist, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Justin Tolomeo, told reporters only, "We have interest in him in regard to his ideology".

'When you look at the document that he wrote, it's really a long laundry list of injustices he believes that the government and society and the upper class have put forth onto the rest of the citizens, ' Spoden said, declining to offer details.

"This subject has been identified and is not the subject involved in the Rock County firearms burglary investigation", according to the release, referring to the search for Joseph A. Jakubowski of Janesville.

There are no viable threats to the school or staff.

"Information was received in the very early morning hours Thursday that Jakubowski has been highly agitated recently, regarding a variety of political issues", Sheriff Robert Spoden told the Wisconsin State Journal.

Anyone with information about Jakubowski's whereabouts is asked to call the Rock County Sheriff's Office at 608-757-7911. Several schools were on soft lockdown Thursday.

As a precautionary measure, the district started an evacuation process at Whitewater High School, Whitewater Middle School and Lincoln Elementary School at 3:30 p.m. Students were transported to University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Young Auditorium.

Spoden said police were looking into 65 leads and had searched a dozen locations.

But, he said, police had not seen his "antigovernment or terrorist-type" behavior.
