School van believed to be stolen by Shawn Christy found in West Virginia

The search for a wanted Schuylkill County fugitive has dealt authorities another twist.

U.S. Marshalls say the school van believed to be stolen by Shawn Christy was found in Nitro, West Virginia.

Officials believe Christy, of McAdoo, stole the van from Butler Township, Luzerne County earlier this week.

Christy is accused of threatening President Donald Trump and Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.

He's been on the run since June.

Christy is believed to have several guns, including three taken from a relative's home last week.
