LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man accused in Las Vegas of helping a pet shop owner in the city torch her store with 27 puppies inside is expected to face transport in custody from Indiana to Nevada to face multiple felony charges.
Kirk Bills, 27, of Henderson was arrested Friday in Crown Point, Ind., said FBI agent Joan Hyde.
Bills had been sought on a felony arrest warrant by authorities in Las Vegas after prosecutors identified him as the man seen on security video pouring a liquid from gasoline cans and setting it afire early Jan. 27 at the Prince and Princess pet store.
Firefighters rescued the puppies alive.
