PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Several federal law enforcement agencies are looking for a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened to kill the president and other officials. 

The U.S. Marshals, F.B.I. and Secret Service are trying to find 27-year-old Shawn Richard Christy from McAdoo, Schuylkill County. Investigators say he stole several cars while on the run, and he may now be in a 1997 GMC Sierra pickup truck that he stole in Maryland. It has a Pennsylvania license plate: ZGL-2845. 

Christy has been wanted since June, when police say he used Facebook to threaten the Northampton County district attorney and President Donald Trump.

He's considered to be armed and dangerous. There's a $20,000 reward for information that leads to his arrest.
