Joseph Jakubowski on stolen guns: 'I buried them'

The suspect is in jail after 10-day manhunt

In an exclusive interview from jail, Joseph Jakubowski answers the question law enforcement still don't know: Where are the remaining guns?

Jakubowski sits in jail charged with several counts related to a break-in and theft at a Janesville Gun Shop. He's accused of leaving that store with 18 guns and two silencers. He also sent a manifesto to the White House before leading local and national authorities on a manhunt. He was found with just 5 weapons. That leaves 13 still missing. The I-Team's Casey Geraldo asked him where he put them.

"They're buried, Okay? I don't know. Honestly, I give you ,with all the blood in my body. I buried them and I don't know where. I don't know  Woods look all the same," Jakubowski said over the phone from jail.

Law enforcement tells our Madison sister station they think he might have traded weapons for a ride to Vernon County, where he was captured. Jakubowski confirms he did hitch hike part of the way.

"I did get a ride in the beginning. I hitch hiked, other than that, outside of that it was hiking," he said.

Jakubowski did not mention trading weapons for that ride. He said he walked the rest of the way to where he was arrested after the 10-day manhunt.

Jakubowski tells the I-Team he knew the man whose farm he was arrested on was going to turn him in. He tells us he hopes that man got the reward money for calling authorities and turning him in.
