The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Shawn Richard Christy, 27, of McAdoo, Pennsylvania, WCAU TV reported.

Christy was last seen Sunday night in Cumberland, Maryland, driving a stolen vehicle, according to CNN.

He is also accused of threatening Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.

"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," investigators said Christy posted on Facebook in June.

Investigators have multiple warrants on Christy, including one for burglary, another for probation violation and one for failure to appear in court on an aggravated assault charge, WCAU reported.
