Gang member Mirella Ponce is causing a media frenzy, but not because she was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm while travelling with her baby and two other gang members, WKRG noted.

Instead, the packing mom's luscious dark hair, sultry eyes and heavily tattooed neck is what gained her national attention and a slew of compliments.

Ponce was arrested on Monday by Fresno officers who pulled her on over, and when her mugshots were posted to social media by the Fresno Police Department, they went viral, CBS SF Bay Area reported.

The photo was shared about 4,500 times and received more than 2,000 "likes" and reactions before it was removed from social media.

"The only crime she committed was stealing my heart," one person responded to the photo on Facebook, CBS SF Bay Area noted.

Another commenter wrote, "All about her looks and not about the child in the car or the fact she's a gang member carrying a gun with other gang members."

Someone even offered to pay for Ponce's bail, which was set at $50,000.

While many have made light of the situation, there are darker undertones to the arrest.

In Touch Weekly noted that Ponce is believed to be a member of the Tiny Rascal Gang, a notoriously violent crime ring in California comprising over 10,000 members.

Ponce was charged with two counts for carrying a concealed firearm and a stolen firearm.

Ponce's case is similar to that of Jeremy Meeks, the former Stockton inmate who launched into fame, and a modelling contract, after his good looks gained his mugshots widespread attention.
