Leimome Cheeks accused of transporting children in cages

A Memphis, Tennessee grandmother has been arrested after video surfaced (see below) of her transporting two young children in pet kennels inside her vehicle.

The children, one seven and one eight- years-old also reportedly said that Cheeks claimed they couldn't sit inside the trucks because there wasn't enough room.

She is now facing two charges of child endangerment.

Temperatures in Memphis, Tennessee, reached up to 33 degrees on Saturday.

In the video, a child is seen climbing out of the trunk of the vehicle from the kennel.

Skylarr Blake, who lives a few doors down from Cheeks, said he couldn't imagine her doing such a thing.

Cheeks admitted to traveling with the kids from Whitehaven to Collierville, which is a 35-minute drive. The concerned citizen who shot the video says that he recorded the video for evidence in case police didn't show up in time.

According to Local Memphis, Nikita Blake, another of Cheeks' neighbours, added: "It's very sad".

Cheeks recently brought the kennels for her two puppies. The kids reportedly told officials that it was hot in the back of the auto, according to Fox 13. Police said the back of the vehicle did not have any air vents, according to the Commercial Appeal. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her".

"I don't think she knew because she loves her grandkids", Cowan told Fox 13.

Cheeks was being held on Sunday in the Shelby County Jail.

Cheeks was arraigned Monday and is due back in court on July 9.

Police have launched an official investigation into the incident.
