A Schuylkill County man wanted for making threats against President Trump has been taken into custody. 

Authorities had been tracking Shawn Christy for about 3 months. He was arrested in Ohio. 

U.S. Marshals say he traveled to at least 5 states, using several stolen vehicles, and even taunted law enforcement on social media. 

An indictment alleges that Christy posted on Facebook that he was going to shoot President Trump in the head, and that he was going to use “lethal force” on any law enforcement officer that attempts to detain him.

 The FBI was offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
