The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania says a federal grand jury returned a second superseding indictment Monday adding an additional charge of interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle against Shawn Christy, age 27, of McAdoo, who was previously indicted for threatening to harm President Trump and others.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, the second superseding indictment charges Christy with transporting a stolen vehicle from Pennsylvania to New York State on July 7-8, 2018.

The second superseding indictment also includes all of the charges contained in the initial superseding indictment: interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, two counts of interstate transportation of a stolen firearm, two counts of interstate transportation of a firearm while under a felony information, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm as a convicted felon, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm as a fugitive, threats against the President of the United States, and three counts of transmitting threatening communications.

The threat to President Trump is being investigated by United States Secret Service agents, and the other charges are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police, and Butler Township Police.
