USA woman arrested after children filmed in vehicle in pet kennels

USA woman arrested after children filmed in vehicle in pet kennels

A Memphis woman is behind bars after a video shows her letting children out of pet kennels.

A woman has been arrested after a video shared online showed two children getting out of pet kennels inside the trunk of an SUV.

The video was taken on Elvis Presley Boulevard near Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

Leimome Cheeks 62, was arrested and faces charges of child endangerment, according to the Memphis Police Department.

There were no air-conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle and the children told police they became hot.

"Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven to Collierville with the children in the kennel", a police affidavit says.

"It's very sad. Because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot", said Nikita Blake who is Cheeks neighbor. "For them to be in the hot auto like that in cages is sad", neighbor Nikita Blake told WREG.

The incident was filmed on cell phone on Saturday by a man who happened to drive pass as the children were exiting from the vehicle.

The child walks away and the woman latches up the kennel as the person with the camera pulls away.

"It's shocking, it really is", Blake told WATN.

Cheeks' neighbor, Camilla Cowan, says she was shocked to see the video on Facebook but thinks Cheeks didn't realize she was doing anything wrong.

Other neighbours Eugene and Melanie Richmond described her as a "super good neighbour" and "a real caring person".

Cheeks was released on bond Sunday. She is scheduled to appear Monday in court. Heavy will update as more information is known.
