TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- The former head of Tulsa's Reproductive Services has been charged with one count of willfully making a threat with an explosive device.

According to the Reproductive Services web site, Linda Meek is still the center's executive administrator.  However, the center says Meek's employment with Reproductive Services ended on August 17th.  The center says it can't comment any further because it's a personnel issue.

The felony charge against Meek was filed in U.S. district court on September 1st, 2010. 

It stems from an incident that happened on August 13th.  Someone found a device in a trash can inside the offices of Reproductive Services, located in the 6100 block of East 32nd Place, near 31st and Sheridan.

The Tulsa Police Department used its bomb robot to examine the device and concluded that it did not contain anything dangerous.

The prosecutor handling the case, assistant United States attorney Dennis Fries, said Meek is scheduled to enter a plea on the charge next week.  He said it will be up to a judge to decide whether to allow her to post bond.

When asked if he's had any discussions with Meek's attorney for a possible plea agreement, Fries said he had no comment.

According to its web site, Reproductive Services was founded in 1973 to provide "a high-quality, low-cost alternative to women unable to complete their pregnancies."
