Richmond, VA (WRVA) - Memphis, Tennessee police have arrested a grandmother and charged her with two counts of child endangerment. 62 year old Leimome Cheeks was caught on video letting two kids out of dog crates that were in the back of her SUV.  The video was captured Saturday (6/9/18) in the 3700 block of Elvis Presley Blvd. The video was then turned over to the Memphis Police Department. The children, ages 7 and 8, told police they were put in the kennels because there was no room in the vehicle for them to sit. The kids were reportedly in the crates for around 40 minutes. The temperature in Memphis was in the low to mid 90’s while the kids were in the crates. Granny has been released on bond. The kids seem to be physically okay after the incident
