JANESVILLE, Wis. (WREX) -- Officials say Joseph Jakubowski, the suspect accused of stealing numerous guns and sending a threatening 161-page manifesto to President Trump, now faces more charges after Federal prosecutors filed additional weapons charges.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Wisconsin's Western District said Wednesday that Jakubowski now faces charges for allegedly stealing 18 firearms, two silencers, as well as felony firearm possession charges. Initial documents show his charges only accounted for two firearms and two silencers.

The 32-year-old sparked a nationwide manhunt back on April 4 after allegedly burglarizing a Janesville gun store, Armageddon Supplies, and sending his manifesto outlining a revolution to the White House.

Officers captured Jakubowski last Friday camping out at a Vernon County farm. He remains in federal custody without bond.
