Man pleads guilty to vandalizing Kalispell clinic

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — A Columbia Falls man said he was intoxicated and looking for drugs, not making an anti-abortion statement, when he broke into a Kalispell clinic last year, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Zachary Klundt, 25, pleaded guilty Thursday to burglary, criminal mischief and theft for the March 2014 break-in at All Families Healthcare, the only clinic in the Flathead Valley that provided abortions.

"I harmed and hurt many people by what I did last March, but no one was hurt more by my actions than (clinic owner) Susan Cahill," said Klundt, whose mother was on the board of directors of Hope Pregnancy Ministries at the time of the break-in. "It is true that I am pro-life. (But) what I did to you, Susan, does not reflect my values."
