GRAND CHUTE - One person has been arrested and faces federal charges in connection with an explosion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Grand Chute.
Police say Francis Grady, 50, of Grand Chute is charged with arson and damage to property.
Grady was arrested Monday evening. He will make an appearance in federal court in Green Bay Wednesday afternoon.
Grady remains in custody, and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
A witness' description of an SUV seen leaving the scene matched security video from the facility. The video also showed distinctive markings on the vehicle. Police determined the same SUV had been involved in a traffic crash in another community after the Planned Parenthood explosion was reported. The SUV had to be towed from the scene. The physical description of the driver in the accident report matched the characteristics of the person seen on surveillance video, which police say helped them track him down.
Police have been investigating since a fire at the clinic triggered an alarm Sunday night. Investigators say a homemade explosive started a small fire – which burned itself out – and a window was broken when they arrived.
No one was inside the building at the time.
The FBI and ATF are helping with the investigation.
