This Week’s Dumb Crook – Memphis Woman Puts Kids in Dog Kennels
Wow. Just wow.
62 year old Leimome Cheeks has been charged with two counts of child endangerment after video showed two children getting out of dog kennels in the back of an SUV at Graceland according to abc13.com.
The video was taken by a passerby then forwarded to Memphis police.
Why were those kids in kennels? According to the police affidavit, Cheeks said there wasn't enough room for them in the seats.
That's what she told police.
The children, ages 7 and 8, are Cheek's grandchildren. The kids told police that it got hot as there were no air conditioning vents that blow in that area of the vehicle. That trip is estimated to have lasted almost 30 minutes.
Memphis police posted this update to their Facebook page.
Not exactly sure why they thought this was even remotely a good idea.
