The Rock County Sheriff's Office said investigators were not aware of any threat toward a specific school, school district, church or religious institution.

Authorities were making arrangements to return him to Rock County to face charges. The hunt continues Monday, April 10, . "That's the trusting environment that we are able to have here in Rock County and Janesville Wisconsin", he added.

A fugitive from Janesville who sparked a nine-day nationwide manhunt is now in police custody.

Jakubowski is suspected of stealing an arsenal of weapons from a gun store in southern Wisconsin and of mailing a threatening manifesto to the White House. Five guns, a samurai sword, copy of his manifesto, and inflammable liquids were found nearby his campsite.

VIOLA (WKOW) - Authorities have Joseph Jakubowski in custody, according to our news partner WIBA Radio.

Richard Erdman owns a pawnshop in downtown Janesville. He said his wife had been avoiding the mall, fearing it could be the target of an attack.

Police were called by a citizen who spotted Jakubowksi on his farming property in Readstown Wisconsin.

On Thursday, WTMJ-TV posted 35 pages of handwritten documents to its website that it said were an unidentified law enforcement official verified as Jakubowski's writings.

The governor had cancelled the state's Easter event, due to safety concerns.

The suspicious person complaint reported that a male matching the description of Jakubowski was camping at that location and refused to leave when he had been asked to do so.

Authorities said that they had responded to tips and leads and searched numerous locations to find Jakubowski, whom they described as armed and "highly risky". He was arrested around 5 a.m. Friday morning.

Jakubowski looked disheveled and sleep-deprived and didn't put up a fight when officers arrested him, said Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden.

Gorn says he wasn't scared of Jakubowski, but that he could tell something was wrong.

Police surrounded Jakubowski receiving a call from landowner Jeffrey Gorn.

The nationwide manhunt for a Janesville man who allegedly stole guns and mailed an anti-government manifesto to President Donald Trump ended Friday morning in remote Vernon County, where Joseph Jakubowski gave himself up without incident after law enforcement authorities found him under a tarp, looking disheveled and exhausted.

During a news conference in Janesville, officials said 32-year-old Jakubowski was found in a makeshift camp on a hill in a remote wooded area on the Vernon and Richland county line at about 6 a.m.

"We're glad it's over and we're glad no one got hurt", he also said.

The search for Jakubowski began earlier this month when he allegedly stole 18 firearms and two suppressors from the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, Wisconsin, according to NBC. In his manifesto, the suspect detailed a long list of grievances against the government and law enforcement.

The Waukesha Sheriff's office is now determining the authenticity of the letter, which threatened violence against a number of unspecific churches on Easter Sunday. Police believe he wrote an anti-religion and anti-government manifesto, that he seemingly mailed to President Trump.
