Grandma charged for transporting grandkids in dog kennels

Gerardo Duncan | 11 June, 2018, 16:42

Police said a woman has been arrested after a video shared online showed two children getting out of pet kennels inside the trunk of an SUV in Memphis on Saturday evening.

Disturbing cell phone video led to the arrest of Leimome Cheeks, who now faces two counts of child endangerment.

Cheeks was taken into police custody after a concerned witness shot video of her on Saturday as she opened the trunk of her Ford Explorer and released the children from the kennels.

According to the affidavit, the children told police there was no room in the backseat, so their grandmother told them to get inside the dog cages.

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.

Skylarr Blake, Cheeks' neighbor, told WATN that Cheeks was a "nice lady" and that he couldn't "see her doing that". "For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", one neighbour said.

People convicted of child endangerment charges are typically sentenced to between one and 10 years in jail, depending on the seriousness of the case.

"I think she needs some help".

In an affidavit, Cheeks admitted to placing the children in the pet kennels and transporting them from Whitehaven to Collierville to Downtown Memphis. "If she did that, then that's out of character for her", Eugene Richmond said.

Arresting officers noted there being no air conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle with the children telling police they became hot.

Strangely enough, there is little information available on the relations between Cheeks and the children, aged 7 and 8-years-old.

Cheeks is expected to appear in court Monday at 9 a.m.
