Memphis woman seen letting young girl out of pet kennel

Police in Memphis have arrested a woman after a viral video shows her traveling with two children in pet kennels.

WATN reports the children, ages 7 and 8, told police their grandmother told them there wasn't room for them in the vehicle.

A Tennessee woman was arrested over the weekend for transporting two children around in dog kennels inside her vehicle. She allegedly told them to get in the kennels because there wasn't enough room in the SUV.

Temperatures were in the mid-90's Saturday in the city.

One of them, Skylark Blake, said, "Cheeks is a "nice lady" adding that he "can't see her doing that".

"You looking at that video, you see she opened up the cage let the kids out the cage out the trunk of the vehicle, I mean it don't look good", Blake said.

Further investigation is now underway. And indeed, it was around 95 degrees on the day that the children were seen in the pet kennels.


Neighbors tells us Cheeks just bought two puppies, which is why the kennels are in the back of her truck.

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who passed by.

Leimome Cheeks was apprehended by police after the children were spotted on Elvis Presley Boulevard, in Memphis, yesterday afternoon, Fox 17 News reports.

"It's very sad. Because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot", said Nikita Blake who is Cheeks neighbor.

"I think she needs some help". A phone listing for Cheeks rang unanswered Monday.

"I mean it could be an honest mistake".

Police say the children are okay.
