The Wisconsin fugitive who authorities say sent a long-winded, anti-government manifesto to President Trump has been captured, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The announcement that Joseph Jakubowski is now in police custody first came via a tweet Friday morning from the Beloit Police Department that read, "CAPTURED! Awesome work to the men and women who worked this case," along with a picture of the suspect stamped with a giant red "FOUND."
A press release explains the Vernon County Sheriff's Office in southwestern Wisconsin got wind Thursday night of a "suspicious person" who was said to be camping on a farmer's land and wouldn't leave when asked. Officers converged on the Readstown location and captured the man without any issues just before 6am Friday; they then were able to ID him as Jakubowski.
