LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man accused of helping a Las Vegas pet shop owner torch her store with 27 puppies inside has been arrested in Indiana.

An FBI spokeswoman in Chicago says Kirk Bills was arrested Friday night in Crown Point, Ind., by its Violent Crimes Task Force. Joan Hyde deferred comments on extradition to Las Vegas authorities.

Prosecutors say security videos show Gloria Eun Hye Lee and a man torching Lee’s Prince and Princess pet store on Jan. 27.

Lee was taken to jail Friday after a judge raised her bail from $40,000 to $310,000 after prosecutor Shanon Clowers filed additional charges.

She is charged with 31 counts of arson, conspiracy, burglary and attempted animal cruelty. Her attorney has said she will fight the charges.

Las Vegas firefighters rescued the puppies alive.
