LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Women have flooded the Facebook page of a US city’s police department with lust-fueled 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 Wednesday in raids in Stockton, California after a spate of shootings and robberies.

By midday 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, while Michelle Asher Morales asked: “Can we be handcuffed together....lordy!!”
