The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says Aimee Whitchurch, 37, and Christel Conklin, 29, both face charges of criminal mischief and false reporting. Whitchurch also faces a charge of forgery.

Investigators say the women reported the incident on Oct. 28, saying they were victims of a hate crime.

When deputies arrived at the home on Lark Water Lane, they found the words in red spray paint on the garage door. The next day, investigators went back to the home on a report that a noose was left on a door handle.

The women told investigators say they felt the incidents were retaliation for issues they were having with their homeowner's association and their neighbors.

Investigators now believe Whitchurch and Conklin spray painted their own garage and put a noose on their own front door. An arrest warrant was issued for both and both have a $1,000 bond.
