    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.
