On Wednesday, a bystander spotted the kids getting loaded into the trailer at the Tennessee Welcome Center in Cocke County. A short time later a THP trooper spotted the vehicle and pulled them over.
Three children, under the age of 8, were in the trailer. The trooper also noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Lakista Williams, Willie Green Jr., and Eric Larue are facing three counts each of Child Endangerment.
