[ARCHIVED] Vandalism Investigation at Bowling Green Pregnancy Center Continues

The Bowling Green City Police Division and Wood County Prosecuting Attorney Paul Dobson announced today that the investigation into the vandalism of Her Choice, also known as the Bowling Green Pregnancy Center, was on-going.  The investigation has involved federal investigators working with the city police and the prosecutor’s office.  “The investigators have developed some significant leads which are being pursued and we think will ultimately be fruitful,” said Police Chief Tony Hetrick.  “However, there still remains work to be done before any decisions can be made.  We are still interested in any information we can obtain from the public”


Prosecutor Paul Dobson said that no decision has been made regarding whether any charges would be filed and, if so, whether the case would be handled at the state or the federal level.  “We appreciate the cooperative effort of the Bowling Green City Police and the FBI,” said Paul Dobson, “we remain in regular communication with the federal authorities and have collectively agreed that any decisions on what will happen will be made when we have all of the information in.”


In the early morning hours of Saturday, April 15th, the front of the building housing the pregnancy center was defaced with spray painted words.  Among the comments spray painted was an allusion to “Jane’s Revenge,” an abortion rights group alleged to have been involved in other similar incidents around the country.  “The investigation remains ongoing as to any connection between this incident and any larger organization or movement,” said Paul Dobson.
