Shawn Christy, 26, may spotted in Rush Township, approximately 3 km south of his home in McAdoo, the Morning Call reported. Rush is about 112 miles north of Allentown.

Christy has been the subject of a large-scale search by the U. S. Marshals, FBI and the US Secret Service for allegedly threatening “to put a bullet” in the president’s head as well as making a death threat against a local prosecutor.

A man described as having a scruffy beard broke into a house near the Still Creek Reservoir after removing an air conditioner, according to the Morning Call. He was reportedly haunted by the homeowner around 2 a.m.

Residents said they believe the man was looking for food.

A federal arrest warrant issued for Christy on June 19, when he allegedly posted a message on Facebook to say: “Keep it up Morganelli, I promise you a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.

The Facebook post has now been removed, Washington, FOX 5 DC reported.

The manhunt has taken officials of the different member states. The FBI said Christy is believed to have numerous stolen guns.
