Gray affiliate FOX19 reports Daniel Kibler was arrested and charged with possession of a destructive device or booby trap device, terroristic threatening and eight counts of wanton endangerment following a search of his home in Independence.

Authorities say they learned Kibler was threatening to blow up the reproductive health care organization's Cincinnati location. People who knew Kibler reported the threat to law enforcement.

“During a recorded interview, Kibler admitted to creating the destructive device/substance and storing it within the residence for up to two years where 7 children and his wife lived," Kibler's arrest citation stated. “During the search, the device was found in an open top container.”

Planned Parenthood called the alleged threat "unacceptable" in a statement and made ties to political rhetoric as a possible motivating factor. The report doesn't specify what Kibler's motive was.

Kibler was arraigned in court in Kenton County Monday morning. His bond remains at $100,000.

Kenton County authorities are still investigating the case.
