New details on firebombing of Costa Mesa abortion clinic by a Camp Pendleton Marine and two others

A federal grand jury indictment is expected to be unsealed in Santa Ana today and the arrest of a third defendant will be
announced in the 2022 firebombing of a Costa Mesa clinic operated by Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

The details will be released at a morning briefing at the Ronald Reagan Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Defendants Tibet Ergul, 21, of Irvine, and 23-year-old Chance Brannon, of San Juan Capistrano are scheduled to be arraigned on federal charges after the briefing, federal officials said. Brannon is an active-duty Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton. 

Both defendants were arrested on June 14 on suspicion of using an explosive or fire to damage real property affecting interstate
commerce which carries a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison….”
