Suspect arrested for abortion clinic vandalism
KALISPELL, Mont. - The destruction was everywhere.
"They broke every picture that I had. Everything that was glass was broken. There's been complete disregard for anything," said Susan Cahill
Wednesday afternoon Cahill began to pick up what remained of her practice, All Families Health Care in Kalispell.
We walked through the building with Cahill to see just how extensive the damage is.
She says she first found out about the break in Tuesday morning when her receptionist arrived to work and saw that the building had been broken into.
"The police said you can't come in now and one of the police women said that it's very extensive, you just need to know that. I haven't seen this bad in a long time, we can't let you in now," said Cahill.
Police called in the FBI, for one simple reason.
This is an abortion clinic.
But investigators didn't find a suspect until 24 year old Zachary Klundt tried breaking into another building, this time on South Main Street.
When authorities reportedly found Klundt near that location, they said they connected him to the break in at Cahill's practice.
But Cahill is no stranger to vandalism at her work.
Back in the 1994, Cahill's clinic was fire-bombed.
That suspect was arrested, but Cahill's never forgotten.
"I need somebody to be accountable for what they did for this because that's what needs to happen. It's not okay, it's not okay," said Cahill.
Klundt is currentlybeing held at the Flathead County Detention Center and is facing charges of burglary and carrying a concealed weapon. Pending charges include felony criminal mischief, attempted burglary and theft.
