FBI agents in Indiana have arrested Kirk Bills, 27, for allegedly assisting Gloria Eun Hye Lee, 35, convicted felon from California of torching her Prince and Princess Pet Store in Las Vegas on January 27th, while 27 Yorkie puppies remained trapped inside. All the dogs were rescued and are currently being cared for at a Vegas animal shelter.

Bills had been sought on a felony arrest warrant by authorities in Vegas after being identified as the man seen pouring gasoline in the store before setting it on fire on a security tape. He and Lee now face a 31-counts of arson, conspiracy, burglary and attempted animal cruelty.

Las Vegas court records show that Bills, who lives in nearby Henderson, NV, had been arrested on a misdemeanor drug-paraphernalia case last June, but prosecutors dropped the charge and the “case was closed.”

According to prosecutor, Shanon Clowers, Lee, a US Citizen formerly from South Korea was previously convicted in California of forgery in 1999, and of larceny from a bank and escape back in 2001. She is being held in a Las Vegas jail after a judge raised her bail from $40,000 to $310,000 and ordered her into custody from house arrest after learning of her past criminal history. A hearing has been scheduled for this coming Tuesday.
