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.

So far, Jeremy Meeks’ mugshot has received more than 20,000 “likes” on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page.
