(WWBT) - A man wanted by the U.S. Marshals, FBI and United States Secret Service for threatening the president and other elected officials may be traveling through Virginia.

A federal warrant was issued for Shawn Christy, 27, in June after he made threats on Facebook to the Northampton County district attorney, stating, "Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I'll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump."

Christy also has multiple arrests warrants in Pennsylvania for burglary, probation violation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault cause. He has threatened to use "full lethal force on any law enforcement officer that tries to detain me."

Police say Christy was most recently spotted in Cumberland, Maryland where he is the suspect in the theft of a red 1997 GMC Sierra pickup truck with Pennsylvania license plate ZGL-2845.

Christy is described as being 5 feet 10 inches tall, approximately 160 pounds with short blonde hair and a full beard. He has a tattoo of a cross on his right upper arm. He speaks with a noticeable lisp and claims to be a survivalist.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or Christy should call 911 immediately or the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332. A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
