STOCKTON, Calif. -- Meet Jeremy Meeks. He's a 30-year-old felon who was arrested Wednesday on felony weapons charges during a sweep in the Weston Ranch area of Stockton, Calif., according to Stockton police.

He's also arguably the most popular suspect to grace the Stockton Police Department Facebook page.

Meeks' police mugshot generated 10,914 likes and 2,400 comments from Wednesday night to Thursday morning, many from women claiming to admire his looks.

"Hottttttt," Melissa Stiles wrote.

"Holy s**t i would arrest him too..hottest bad boy I've seen," Ellie Abbey wrote.

"Why is he breaking the law when he should be making millions modeling! Wowzas," Tanya H. Thomas said.

One user has set up a Facebook fan page for Meeks, who is being held in the San Joaquin County Jail on $900,000 bail. Of course, not everyone is amused by his admirers.

"$900,000 in bail and 6 felonies. You ladies are desperate," Amber Gomes wrote.
