Authorities say he has acquired a bulletproof vest and helmet.

Law enforcement also says he wrote a 161 page anti-government manifesto that he sent to President Trump.

"Basically he's angry at all government officials", Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said at the press conference on Friday.

The FBI is increasing the reward amount for information that leads to the arrest of a Wisconsin man suspected of stealing guns and threatening attacks in an anti-government manifesto he mailed to the White House. He remains at large Monday morning, according to Rock County sheriff's dispatcher Jenna Winiarski.

McNary also said he had spoken with an officer who said they did not believe the man was Jakubowski.

The person asked a series of questions about the church turning away people from services before driving away.

Police on Sunday also released a social media video that they said depicts Jakubowski's sending a package to Trump.

Among other weapons, the suspect reportedly stole at least two assault rifles, several high-end handguns, and perhaps even silencers, which the shop advertises on its Facebook page.

Darlington police didn't immediately return a call for comment from the station.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Jakubowski, who is said to be 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

Later that night, his truck was found nearby engulfed in flames, the Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Juneau County-area police and school districts are taking appropriate safety measures, according to police.

Dozens of law enforcement officers, including Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, were already searching for Jakubowski.

In addition, law enforcement officials said they would provide extra security to House Speaker Paul Ryan - who hails from the city at the center of the search - and his family.

"We don't know if he's in Janesville, if he's in Rock County, he could be in Washington, D.C., we simply don't know", said Chief David Moore, Janesville Police Department.
