United States woman arrested after children filmed in vehicle in pet kennels

Leimome

A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a vehicle trip across the state, police said.

Leimome Cheeks, 62, has been arrested and charged on two counts of child endangerment for the disturbing incident that took place in Memphis on Saturday evening.

The children, aged seven and eight, told officers it was extremely hot in the back of the truck, with temperatures reaching 95 degrees.

Authorities said the suspect admitted that she drove about 35 minutes - from Memphis to Collierville, Tenn. - with two children in dog kennels in the back.

The bystander, who asked to remain anonymous, sent the video to Memphis Police.

Facebook Leimome Cheeks is being charged with child endangerment after allegedly locking two children in dog kennels in the trunk of her SUV. A police affidavit cited by the Commercial Appeal cited a similar statement from Cheeks, who reportedly said "there was no room inside the vehicle earlier in the day".

A Tennessee woman accused of driving her two young grandchildren around in pet kennels is scheduled to appear in court.

Speaking to local media, one neighbour said: "Shocking, it really is".

Skylarr Blake, Cheeks' neighbor, told WATN that Cheeks was a "nice lady" and that he couldn't "see her doing that". "It's a huge mistake, get some help yeah but put her in jail, it's hard to say", he added.

An investigation has been launched by Children Services and Memphis Police.
