Daniel Kibler of Kentucky has been accused of threatening to blow up a Planned Parenthood facility in Cincinnati and was ordered held on $100,000 bond Monday after police found a “homemade destructive device” at his home.

INDEPENDENCE, Ky. — A Kentucky man accused of threatening to blow up a Planned Parenthood facility in Cincinnati was ordered held on $100,000 bond Monday after police found a “homemade destructive device” at his home.

WXIX-TV reports Daniel Kibler was arrested Sunday after police searched his home in Independence. He is charged with possession of a destructive device, terroristic threatening and eight counts of wanton endangerment. His arrest citation says Kibler admitted to creating the destructive device and storing it in his home he’s shared with his wife and seven children.

A judge revealed during Kibler’s arraignment on Monday that the business he allegedly targeted was a Planned Parenthood office in Cincinnati.

Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio President Kersha Deibel said in a statement Monday that the facility was open to serve patients needing care.

“We are here for our patients today and we will continue to be here for our patients, no matter what. For the women, men and young people we serve, the care we provide isn’t about politics — it’s about their well-being, and we remain focused on ensuring our patients are able to access that care safely.”

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
