MEMPHIS, TN — A woman in Tennessee got in some trouble when a concerned citizen recorded her transporting her two grandchildren inside dog crates.

On Saturday, someone shared cell-phone video online they had taken of 62-year-old Leimome Cheeks letting two of her children out of large dog crates located in the back of her SUV.

When police located and questioned Cheeks, she admitted she had driven from about 35 minutes with the two children, ages seven and eight, inside the crates.

“Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven (a Memphis neighborhood) to Collierville with the children in the kennel,” a police affidavit says. “Cheeks further advised they also drove downtown, however she checked on the children periodically and later removed them from the kennel and put them in the rear seats of her vehicle.”

Cheeks was arrested and charged on two counts of child endangerment.

When police questioned the children, they said their grandmother put them in the crates because she didn’t have enough room for them to sit safely in a seat.

The kids also said they were hot during the ride as Cheeks’ vehicle did not have vents in the back and the windows were rolled up. Temperatures were in the mid-90’s that day, btw.

Neighbors call Cheeks a “nice lady” with strong faith, and are having a hard time believing she did what she is accused of.

“I’m still shocked. I really can’t see her doing that. She’s such a nice lady. Wow,” said a neighbor.

Cheeks’ first court appearance is scheduled for some time today.
