LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge has granted a temporary order stopping a raffle of the 27 puppies rescued from a Las Vegas business that authorities say a woman and a man tried to torch.

The order issued Friday blocks Clark County and the non-profit Animal Foundation from taking the dogs from Prince and Princess pet store managing owner Donald Thompson at least until a hearing on Tuesday.

Attorney Jacob Hafter alleges officials conspired to steal the puppies from Thompson and sell them for money.

Thompson wants the dogs to go to a different non-profit group.

With store co-owner Gloria Lee in jail, the Clark County Commission rejected Thompson's ownership claim.

Lee and accused arson co-conspirator Kirk Bills are accused of trying to set the store afire early Jan. 27 for the insurance money.
