A Memphis, Tennessee grandmother has been arrested after video surfaced (see below) of her transporting two young children in pet kennels inside her vehicle.
WMC reported that Leimome Cheeks, 62, of Memphis, was charged with two counts of child endangerment, which carries a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison if convicted.
They said their grandmother told them to sit in the kennels because there was no room in the trunk. Temperatures in the area reached around 35°C.
Neighbors tells us Cheeks just bought two puppies, which is why the kennels are in the back of her truck.
One of them, Skylark Blake, said, "Cheeks is a "nice lady" adding that he "can't see her doing that". Neighbors are shocked. They say Leimome Cheeks is a very nice woman and they can't believe she did something like this. I only met her like once maybe twice.
Cheeks told police that she placed the children in the kennels, but she made sure to check on them periodically.

"I mean it could be an honest mistake. It's a huge mistake, get some help yeah but put her in jail, it's hard to say", Blake said. "For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", one neighbour said.
"You looking at that video, you see she opened up the cage let the kids out the cage out the trunk of the auto, I mean it don't look good", Blake said.
An investigation has been launched by Children Services and Memphis Police.
