Leimome Cheeks 62, was a video was charged with two counts of child endangerment after admitting to transporting her two grandchildren, ages 7 and 8, in kennels.

Cheeks was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment.

According to the police in Memphis, a city located along the US Mississippi River, the video was shared online showing the two children getting out of pet kennels in the 3700 block of Elvis Presley Blvd Saturday evening.

The Memphis police affidavit told of the grandmother claiming there was no room inside her vehicle Saturday, instead telling the children to get inside the kennels.

On the day the video was recorded, temperatures in Memphis reached 95 degrees.

Cheeks said she "also drove downtown, however she checked on the children periodically and later removed them from the kennel and put them in the rear seats of her vehicle", according to the affidavit.

Skylarr Blake, who lives a few doors down from Cheeks, said he couldn't imagine her doing such a thing.

She admitted driving them for about 35 minutes.

One neighbor told Local 24 it was "very sad because it feels like hell right here now, it's very hot".

Cheeks recently brought the kennels for her two puppies.

Police say the children were not harmed.

"I don't think she knew because she loves her grandkids", Cowan told Fox 13. She is scheduled to appear Monday in court.

Cheeks was released on bond Sunday. WATN said it attempted to contact Cheeks at her home over the weekend, but no one answered the door.
