Joseph Jakubowski, 32, was captured at about 6 a.m. Friday at a remote farm in southwestern Wisconsin.

Jakubowski went on the run 10 days ago, after his friend recorded him with a cell phone mailing his manifesto to the White House.

In 161 handwritten pages, authorities say he ranted about the government and religion, saying: “We the people should be out for these sick-minded people belonging to the system! We need to spill their blood!”

He also said that it was time for “revolution” and “time for a change.”

Cops say the same day he mailed the manifesto — April 4 — he was caught on surveillance cameras breaking into a gun shop in Janesville, Wis., the hometown of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The suspect allegedly stole 18 weapons, ammo and body armor. He also torched his car.

It was feared he was planning to launch attacks against churches as they celebrated Easter.
