    Officials charged two women from the Baltimore area in connection with the burning of a billboard promoting President Donald Trump.

    Joy Shuford and D'Asia Perry, both 19, face multiple charges after a billboard in Princess Anne was set fire early Friday morning, according to the Baltimore Sun.

    Charges being filed include second-degree arson, trespassing and committing a hate crime for the blaze that caused $800 worth of damage, officials said.

    Police took Perry into custody after viewing a surveillance image and indentifying her as the driver of the vehicle involved, the Delmarva Daily Times reported.

    Police were seeking another person when Shuford turned herself in Saturday. Both women have been released on an unsecured $20,000 bond.

    The burned billboard also promotes the campaign of a state assemblywoman who lost in the U.S. Senate race for Maryland.
