S.W.E.P.T. Team to assist Law Enforcement agencies as search for wanted man continues

While the weekend has come to a close with no apprehension of Joseph Jakubowski, wanted by local and Federal authorities on a number of potential crimes, authorities are now focusing on the week to come. Here is the latest advisory from local law enforcement:

As the search for Joseph A. Jakubowski (M/W, DOB: 07/21/84, 5’10”, 200 lbs, green eyes and brown hair) continues this Sunday night, investigators are continuing to work through the evening to attempt to locate this armed and dangerous suspect.  Despite extensive efforts, Jakubowski remains at large.

As the weekend nears its close, investigators are beginning to plan for the upcoming week.  Contact has been made with area school districts to advise them that Jakubowski remains at large so that they can make a determination regarding precautionary measures.  Again, we emphasize that we are not aware of any threat towards a specific school or school district. Fortunately, many Rock County schools are on spring break this next week.

While the community response has been incredibly appreciated and overwhelming with regards to providing food and water, the decision has been made to bring in the Southern Wisconsin Emergency Preparedness Team (SWEPT), a local, non-profit organization that provides support services to Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, Emergency Management and other agencies in Rock County.  This volunteer organization will assist in coordinating food and other supplies for investigators.

Investigators wish to continue to remind citizens to remain vigilant as Jakubowski should be considered, “armed and dangerous”.  We continue to actively seek any tips or information related to Jakubowski.  As a reminder, the FBI continues to offer a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the apprehension of this dangerous individual.  Direct sightings should be immediately reported to “911” and general tips or historical information should be directed to 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324).  Law enforcement continues to be very appreciative of all of the assistance that they have received from the community with this difficult situation.

At this point, there is not a press conference scheduled regarding this case.  It is anticipated that a press conference will be scheduled in the future if there are any major changes in this investigation.
