Officials have charged two women from the Baltimore area in connection with the burning of a billboard promoting President Donald Trump.
The State Fire Marshall said Joy Shuford, 19 and D'Asia Perry aslo 19 face multiple charges after a billboard in Princess Anne was set fire early Friday morning. Officials say charges being filed include arson, trespassing and committing a hate crime for the blaze that caused $800 worth of damage.
The Delmarva Daily Times reports police took Perry into custody after a surveillance image identified her as the driver of the vehicle involved. Police were seeking another person when Shuford turned herself in Saturday. Both women have been released on an unsecured $20,000 bond. The billboard also promotes the campaign of a state assemblywoman who lost in Maryland's U.S. Senate race.
