Stepfather urges fugitive to surrender


JANESVILLE, Wis. — The estranged stepfather of a Wisconsin man suspected of stealing guns and threatenin­g attacks in an anti-government manifesto sent to the White House on Tuesday urged the fugitive to surrender.

Don McLean said that his stepson, Joseph Jakubowski, has never had a good relationsh­ip with police and that he and his wife are concerned for his safety.

“We just want him to give up. There’s no good ending to this except him giving up,” McLean, 54, said during an interview Tuesday.

More than 150 state and federal law enforcemen­t officers have been searching for the 32-year-old Jakubowski since April 4, when they believe he took 18 firearms from a gun store in Janesville in southweste­rn Wisconsin. Law enforcemen­t found Jakubowski’s burned vehicle nearby.
