STOCKTON, Calif. – A gun sweep in California is catching the attention of thousands of people across the United States.
Police in Stockton arrested four men during a gun sweep on Wednesday.
According to Fox40, police say a recent uptick in crime in that area led to search warrants being served at 11 different locations.
Two rifles, a handgun, and a shotgun were all seized during the sweep.
Officers arrested 30-year-old Jeremy Meeks, 22-year-old Terry Bailey, 18-year-old Jurzi Coleman and 44-year-old Joelin Coleman, all on felony weapon charges.
When the Stockton Police Department posted mugshots of the men to their Facebook page, one mugshot received a lot of attention from people who were more concerned about the man’s looks than his crimes.
According to WTVR, comments like “Omg he’s waaaaay to sexy to go in a cell,” and “Bring him to me I’ll lock him up,” accompany his mugshot.
So far, Jeremy Meeks’ mugshot has received more than 20,000 “likes” on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page.
