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

Leimome Cheeks, 62, was arrested on Saturday for allegedly transporting her two grandchildren in pet kennels in the trunk of her vehicle.

According to a police affidavit, the children-aged seven and eight-said there was no room left in the auto, so they were told to sit inside the kennels.

The children told police there wasn't much air in the kennels and they were very hot.

She has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after the children, aged seven and eight, were released.

A Memphis woman allegedly placed her two grandchildren kennels and drove them around for at least 40 minutes.

Footage of the incident, which was sent to police by an anonymous bystander, shows the moment the woman let her grandchildren out of the kennels, which were placed in the back of her vehicle.

A video taken by a passerby appears to show a young girl hopping out of a kennel from the trunk of the vehicle after a woman opens the metal cage door. The Memphis Police Department even posted about the case on its Facebook page Sunday to confirm her arrest.

Speaking to local media, one neighbour said: "Shocking, it really is". She's such a nice lady. I only met her like once maybe twice.

Neighbors tells us Cheeks just bought two puppies, which is why the kennels are in the back of her truck. "I couldn't see her actually doing that", said neighbor Skylarr Blake. A phone listing for Cheeks rang unanswered Monday.

Police said the children were 7 and 8 years old.
