(CNN) – 32-year-old Joseph Jakubowski was arrested Friday in rural Vernon County. He’s charged with burglarizing a cache of guns from a Janesville store. Authorities say he wrote a threatening anti-government manifesto and mailed it to President Trump.

A call from Vernon County property owner Jeff Gorn led to the end of the nationwide manhunt for Jakubowski.

Gorn explained, “He’s done things now, there’s no going back, he said, and that kind of threw me for a loop. He was frustrated he was trying to show whoever would listen, how frustrated he was.”

Gorn’s call to authorities was just to make sure about the unknown trespasser who vowed that there’s no going back.

Gorn said, “He was real serious about that. He’s made some threats. He said he sent out 25 letters, it had to do with telling the government, you know, the things that they were doing wrong, and how he’s going to change it all. I just wanted to know if you guys had anything.”

Gorn gave authorities a detailed route to his property in the rural town of Kickapoo, so that Jakubowski would not be able to see them from his vantage point high on a ridge.
