Well — this is one way to attract the attention of thousands of women. The Stockton Police Department (in Stockton, California) released a Facebook photo of a criminal who was arrested on felony weapon charges on June 18. In a shocking twist, the mugshot photo has gone viral!
Jeremy Meeks, 30, could’ve never guessed that thousands of women would share, like and comment on his mugshot on the Stockton PD’s Facebook page — but that’s exactly what happened after he was arrested! In one of the weirdest stories so far this summer, Jeremy — teardrop tattoo and all — has become a well-known face overnight.
Jeremy Meeks: Alleged Felon’s Mug Shot Goes Viral On Facebook
In the Stockton PD’s Facebook post, they detailed Jeremy as one of their day’s arrests: “Jeremy Meeks, a 30 year old man, convicted felon, arrested for felony weapon charges,” part of the post attached to Jeremy’s photo read.
The Stockton Police caught Jeremy as part of their Operation Ceasefire enforcement mission. The criminal sweep was a multi-agency task force that included the Stockton PD Gang Violence Suppression Unit, Community Response Team, County Wide Gang Task Force and nine other organizations, including the FBI, according to the department’s Facebook page.
While the fact that Jeremy was arrested by the hard-working police department for an alleged crime is VERY serious, the comments on his Facebook mug shot are simply hilarious.
