2nd Suspect In Pet Shop Fire Faces Extradition

No Timeline For Legal Proceedings Following Friday Arrest In Indiana

( Las Vegas, NV ) –  The second suspect in a pet shop arson case from the southwest valley remains in custody in Indiana.

The FBI says 27-year-old Kirk Bills was arrested Friday night without incident in Crown Point, Indiana. There’s no word surrounding the circumstances of his arrest other than that it was carried out with the cooperation of  the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm,  The Metro Police Criminal Section,  the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, and the Clark County Fire Department’s Fire Investigation Division.

Bills faces extradition back to Las Vegas and faces multiple felony charges in last month’s fire at the Prince and Princess Pet Store near Rainbow and the 215 Beltway.

Shop owner Gloria Lee was jailed Friday on 310-thousand dollars bail. A status hearing in her case is set for Tuesday.

Twenty-seven puppies rescued from the burning store by firefighters remain at a local animal shelter.
