Los Angeles -

Women have flooded the Facebook page of a US city's police department with lust-fuelled comments about the mugshot of a criminal who looks distinctly like a male model.

Jeremy Meeks, a 30-year-old convicted felon, was one of four men arrested on Wednesday in raids in Stockton, California, after a spate of shootings and robberies.

By midday on Thursday, his mugshot had more than 12 200 likes and nearly 3 000 comments, while it had been shared more than 300 times on Facebook.

“OMGGG superrrrrr delicious,” commented Adjutha Lambertina. Michelle Asher Morales asked: “Can we be handcuffed together... Lordy!!”

Amanda Sullivan sung the praises of “the most attractive looking mug shot I’ve ever seen”.

“It just proves that most people never rise to their true potential. And, that most of us are fooled by a pretty smile and nice eyes... LOL,” she added.

The other three arrested men - whose mugshots also appear on the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page - had a total of just 19 comments between them. - Sapa-AFP
