Maryland - U.S. Marshals, Secret Service Hunt for Man Who Threatened Trump

Authorities are in hot pursuit of a Pennsylvania man wanted for threatening President Donald Trump.

Joining forces to hunt down the suspect are the FBI, Secret Service, and U.S. Marshals. The wanted suspect has been identified as 27-year-old Shawn Richard Christy, who has several outstanding warrants in Pennsylvania for burglary, violating probation, and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.

Christy threatened others. The district attorney of Northampton County, Pennsylvania was among them. The message on Facebook reads: “Keep it up, Morganeli, I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump.”

The Facebook post has since been taken down. Christy’s page has several other posts that also taunt law enforcement.

The U.S. Marshals Service is assisting with the manhunt and warns that Christy has threatened to use “full lethal force on any law enforcement officer that tries to detain me.”

The search for Christy surrounds McAdoo, Pennsylvania and includes Canada.

Supervisory Deputy Robert Clark of the U.S. Marshals Service said:

“We are going to treat Mr. Christy as armed and dangerous and whether he is in Washington D.C. or Anchorage, Alaska, we are treating it as the same. It's a priority for us to get him off the street for the safety of the public and for the safety of any law enforcement officer that is looking for him.”

Christy was last spotted driving a stolen 2001 Jeep Cherokee in Kentucky on Saturday also around a wooded area near Nitro, West Virginia.

Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a suspicious man sleeping inside a vehicle in Cumberland, Maryland. U.S. Marshals later confirmed that it was Christy but the suspect managed to flee the area before authorities could get to him.

Christy is suspected of stealing another vehicle - a 1997 GMC Sierra pickup truck with Pennsylvania license plate ZGL-2845 in Maryland.

A reward of up to $20,000 is being offered to anyone with information that leads to Christy’s arrest.

Christy is described as a white male with a light complexion standing 5-feet-10 inches tall and weighing around 160 pounds. He sports a tattoo of a cross on his right upper arm and has short dark blonde hair and a full beard. He also speaks with a noticeable lisp and claims to be a survivalist.

Anyone with information about Christy is requested to immediately call 911 or the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-Wanted-2 (1-877-926-8332).

Dual hand amputations in lieu of prison would solved many of these such problems and is far less expensive the taxpayers.
