Cmdr. Troy Knudson at the Rock County Sheriff's Office said that the White House received a 161-page manuscript Jakubowski mailed to Trump.

A nationwide manhunt is on for a Wisconsin man wanted for a series of crimes including stealing over a dozen guns and allegedly plotting mass violence targeting law enforcement and political figures.

Police searching for a Wisconsin man considered armed and unsafe stepped up patrols on Sunday at churches near his home because of anti-religious views expressed in a manifesto he sent to U.S. President Donald Trump, officials said.

Earlier in the week, police said a man matching Jakubowski's appearance visited the Bethlehem Lutheran Church to ask about services, but it was later confirmed that he is not the suspect.

As of Monday morning, almost 425 tips have been given to law enforcement, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is continuing to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to Jakubowski's arrest.

"I'm confident that if that were the case, we are going to do everything we can to keep our community safe and keep our officers safe", Rock County Sheriff Richard Spoden said on "America's News HQ".

When officials spoke to an associate of Jakubowski, they learned Jakubowski made a statement about stealing guns and about an unspecified attack. The officer said he repeatedly punched Jakubowski during the altercation, according to the police report. Police increased patrols near churches in Janesville Sunday. Investigators have said Jakubowski's manifesto details a long list of grievances against the government and law enforcement, and threatens attacks against schools and public officials.

The FBI has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to his capture. He stands roughly 5-foot-10-inches tall, with green eyes and brown hair.

A video of Jakubowski shows him dropping a white envelope addressed to President Donald Trump in a mailbox Tuesday.

Police said the suspect was known to officers and had previously been imprisoned for trying to disarm a police officer.

Police discovered a burned vehicle registered to Joseph Jabukowski just a short distance away from the Armageddon Gun Shop in Janesville, WI., where Jabukowski allegedly stole 16 assault weapons and handguns. People who spot him should call 911.
