The Tennessee grandmother transported her children in similar kennels

Dog Kennels

Tennessee's child services department said Monday that it's investigating a woman accused of driving her two young grandchildren around in pet kennels.

The children, ages 7 and 8, told police that they were placed in the cages because there wasn't enough room inside the vehicle, according to a charging affidavit obtained by ABC affiliate WATN.

According to Memphis Police, investigators identified the woman as Leimome Cheeks, 62. The temperature in Memphis on Saturday got up to 95 degrees.

A woman has been arrested after a video shared online showed two children getting out of pet kennels inside the trunk of an SUV. Another neighbor told Fox 13 Cheeks "loves her grandkids" and that they were "always outside playing with the dogs and stuff". "For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", neighbor Nikita Blake told WREG.


She said they were in the kennels for a 25-mile journey from her home in Whitehaven to Collierville. The concerned citizen who shot the video says that he recorded the video for evidence in case police didn't show up in time. She said they were later allowed to ride in the backseat.

According to neighbors, Cheeks just bought two German Shepherd puppies, which is why the kennels are in the back of her truck. "I couldn't see her actually doing that".

"I think she needs some help". Police said the back of the auto did not have any air vents, according to the Commercial Appeal.
