Stockton police arrested Meeks and 3 other men during a gun sweep yesterday.

Stockton Police Officer Joseph Silva called Meeks “one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area,” though he declined to provide any details on the crimes that Meeks is believed to have been involved in.

Meeks, who is being held in lieu of $900,000 bail, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon.

Somebody has even started a Facebook fan page for Meeks, complete with a picture of a gun for a cover photo.
