KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A Columbia Falls man faces charges for allegedly vandalizing a clinic that provides abortions and trying to break into a bail bonds office.

Zachary Klundt, 24, made an initial appearance in Justice Court Thursday on charges of felony burglary, criminal mischief, theft and attempted burglary. His bail was set at $100,000 and he is scheduled to enter a plea on March 27.

Prosecutors say Klundt broke into All Families Healthcare late Monday or early Tuesday, causing significant damage to furniture, medical equipment and supplies and a file cabinet. Investigators say damage was also done to the main sewer line, furnace and water heater. Officials said $950 was missing along with medical supplies and a yellow powder was covering “almost everything.”

Police arrested Klundt on Tuesday evening after the owner of Bob’s Bail Bonds reported someone was trying to break in.

Charging documents say Klundt was arrested nearby carrying a loaded weapon and that he had broken glass in his pockets along with $915 in cash. Officers matched Klundt’s shoeprint to one found at the clinic. Boxes of medical supplies and medical documents taken from the clinic were found in a search of Kludt’s residence, court records said.
