Children spotted housed in pet kennels

Leimome

The citizen, who does not want to be identified, sent the video to Memphis Police.

A video showing one of the children climbing out of the kennel was passed onto police by a horrified neighbour. Moments later, a girl straightens her bent knees to emerge from the pet enclosure.

Sixty-two-year-old Leimome Cheeks was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment, WREG reported.

"It's very sad. Because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot", said Nikita Blake who is Cheeks neighbor.

With temperatures reaching the 95 degree mark, the 7 and 8-year-old explained to officers how they were hot, because there were no vents in the back to keep them cool. Moreover, nobody knows for certain yet whether this was the first time that Cheeks ever asked the kids to stay inside the pet kennels during drives.

Another resident, Skylark Blake told the local press that Mrs Cheeks is a "nice lady" and he "can't see her doing that". Not saying its going to change but eyes are open now.

He said: "It is shocking, it really is".

The children are OK, according to police, but the same can't be said for Leimome Cheeks.

A Memphis woman was arrested over the weekend after she allegedly placed her grandchildren in dog kennels during a auto trip across the state, police said. I only met her like once maybe twice.

Cheeks was released on bond Sunday. Johnson said the children were not in the custody of the Department of Children's Services, but the staff is still "investigating the situation". She's such a nice lady.

Mrs Cheeks is due in court later on Monday.
