A fugitive from McAdoo on the run since June may have burglarized a house and stolen a Jeep in Kentucky on Thursday.

Kentucky State Police reported on their Facebook page that a surveillance camera allegedly recorded Shawn Christy, 26, inside a house in Adair County, about 100 miles south of Louisville and not far from the Tennessee border.

According to the post, Dakota Meyer’s brother, Timothy Gilliam, arrived home and found the front door had been kicked open. After authorities searched the house, it was learned food was stolen from a refrigerator and a green 2001 Jeep Cherokee with a black hood was stolen from a detached garage.

Gilliam showed Kentucky troopers surveillance videos that appeared the suspect was Christy.

Meyer is the former son-in-law of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Christy served nine months in federal prison in Alaska in 2011 on charges he harassed Palin’s lawyers, according to court records.

Christy is wanted on allegations he threatened President Donald Trump, a district attorney and law enforcement in Facebook posts between June 3 and June 12, according to a federal grand jury indictment.

Federal authorities suspect Christy stole a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan from Rohrer Bus along Route 309 in Drums, Butler Township, on July 29 or July 30. The Dodge was recovered near Nitro, West Virginia, on Aug. 2.

The bus company is in the same area where Christy allegedly burglarized a relative’s house on Klingers Road in Butler Township, stealing three handguns.

Christy is considered armed and dangerous. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to Christy’s arrest.

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering an additional $5,000 reward.
