Canadian Stéphanie Beaudoin is now considered to have the title of the “world’s sexiest criminal” after photos of the cat burglar went viral online over the weekend.
The girl was arrested last month and now she is facing an incredible ammoint of charges (144!) after allegedly breaking into 42 homes in the area of Victoriaville, Canada.
Police have found the guns in Beaudoin’s white Mitsubishi Lancer.
‘The record is impressive. I was given a document that [is] at least 12 inches thick,’ her lawyer Denis Lavigne told La Nouvelle Union newspaper.
The story was originally reported by the Montreal Journal, which also unveiled a photo of Beaudoin posing in a black bikini. The photo started to get shared around and pretty soon, Beaudoin became an Internet sensation.
A Facebook fan page appeared and began sharing more photos of Beaudoin. The page now has scored more than 4,000 likes.
The beauty is accused of working with three teen-aged accomplices to break into and burglarize homes. The 21-year-old nursing student is accused of breaking and entering, receiving stolen property, and illegally owning and storing nine firearms. She is due to appear in court on November 17.
“According to the charges, Stephanie Beaudoin and her co-conspirators, one of them only 13-years-old, in addition to a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old, broke into homes through basement windows or back doors in the Quebec municipalities of Maple and Arthabaska,” writes Inquisitr.
Social media users have dubbed Beudoin the “world’s sexiest criminal,” with commenters on Facebook inviting her to “break into my house” and saying things like “kidnap me anytime.”
“Stephanie Beaudoin can steal my heart any day,” said one.
“Move over Jeremy Meeks!” declared Twitter user mmnjug, referring to “mug shot guy,” Meeks, of course, is the alleged gang member whose chiseled features and blue eyes turned his arrest photograph into a viral sensation earlier this year.
By the way, she isn’t the first alleged criminal to make headlines for sweeping the Internet off its feet this year.
“In February, “hot convict” Meagan Simmons filed a lawsuit against InstantCheckmate.com over the background check site’s use of her mugshot in online advertisements. The photo, taken in 2010, became an Internet meme. After initially embracing her online popularity, Simmons became creeped out by the unwanted attention, and decided it was an invasion of her privacy,” reminds Syracuse.
“More recently, “hot mugshot guy” Jeremy Meeks followed in Simmons’ footsteps after he was arrested in June during a gang police sweep. His booking photo, which looks strikingly like a model’s head shot, also went viral. Fans created a gofundme.com campaign to “Free Jeremy,” and even offered to help him find work as a professional model.”
