Memphis woman arrested for transporting kids in pet kennels, police say

A bystander videotaped a freaky scene of a woman letting kids out of pet kennels in her auto, which led to the woman's arrest.

A Memphis, Tennessee grandmother has been arrested after video surfaced (see below) of her transporting two young children in pet kennels inside her vehicle. A bystander happened to capture the moment on video when the woman was letting a girl out of one of the pet kennels.

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

"There was no room inside the vehicle earlier in the day..."

A police report said that the children said they were told to get into the kennels because there wasn't enough room for them to sit in the main part of the vehicle.

"Leimome Cheeks was interviewed and admitted to riding from Whitehaven to Collierville with the children in the kennel", a police affidavit says. For more than 40 minutes, the kids rode in those kennels.

She also drove to downtown Memphis, telling police she made stops to check on them periodically.

Police say the children are okay.

Cheeks told police that she traveled with the children in the kennel from Collierville to Whitehaven because there was no room for them in the auto, Cleveland 19 News reports.

The white supremacist female who appeared in the viral video where she had two Black children in dog cages, has been identified as Leimome Cheeks of Memphis, TN.

The woman is being held at the Shelby County Jail.

The woman is being charged with two counts of child endangerment, according to Cleveland 19. Their grandmother is scheduled to be in court Monday morning at 9 a.m.
