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

Watch: US woman arrested after children filmed in car in pet kennels

"Many have inquired about a viral video from Saturday that shows two children being transported in pet kennels", the department said.

The 62-year-old has been charged with two counts of Child Endangerment, Memphis Police said in a Facebook post.

Neighbors said Cheeks just bought two German Shepherd puppies that she would put in the kennels in the back of her truck.

During an interview with investigators, the two kids say Cheeks, their grandmother, told them to get in the kennels because there was not enough room in her vehicle.

A Tennessee grandmother was caught allegedly transporting her grandchildren in dog kennels in the trunk of her vehicle is now in the dog house. Temperatures in the area reached about 35 degrees Celsius.

Cheeks was charged with child endangerment. "She's such a nice lady", a neighbor told WREG-TV.

"I think she needs some help".

They also said sitting in the kennels was very hot, because there were no vents for air. "For them to be in the hot vehicle like that in cages is sad", one neighbour said.

The footage shows Cheeks open the cage for one of the children, seen wearing turquoise leggings and a blue T-shirt.

The video was filmed by a concerned citizen who passed by. "You looking at that video, you see she opened up the cage let the kids out the cage out the trunk of the auto, I mean it don't look good".

Cheeks was being held on Sunday in the Shelby County Jail.

Police said the children were OK after the incident. Their grandmother is scheduled to be in court Monday morning at 9 a.m.
