A Memphis woman has been arrested and charged for two counts of child endangerment, after she was filmed transporting two children in dog kennels, reported CBS news.

According to police, the children were spotted Saturday afternoon in the 3700 block of Elvis Presley Blvd. near Graceland.

They say she's a woman of faith and they have always known her to be a very nice lady.

The temperature reached a high of 95 degrees Saturday in Memphis.

"I'm still shocked", neighbor Skylarr Blake also said, describing Cheeks as "such a nice lady".

There weren't air conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle, and the children told police they were hot.

She is charged with child endangerment that carries a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison if convicted.


A concerned citizen shot the video and forwarded it to the police.

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

Officers saw that the children were no longer inside the kennels but were seated in the back seat, the affidavit said.

He aded that the incident could have been an "honest mistake" and that the grandmother should "get help".

According to an affidavit, the two kids ages 7 and 8 told investigators they were put in the kennels because they were told there was not enough room inside of the vehicle. The Memphis Police Department even posted about the case on its Facebook page Sunday to confirm her arrest.

Cheeks is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning. Police said the back of the vehicle did not have any air vents, according to the Commercial Appeal.

Ms Cheeks was being held in the Shelby County Jail.
