Fresno Police Dept Facebook
There's a new hot felon on the block, and this time it's a lady! A 20-year-old named Mirella Ponce went viral after the Fresno Police Department posted her mugshot on Oct. 23. She may be bad — she was arrested on felony weapons charges — but she's definitely beautiful. With luscious long hair, full Kylie Jenner lips, a killer highlight, and eyelashes for days, she doesn't look anything like your average criminal. Here's everything you need to know about the woman who the internet is now calling "Mugshot Bae"!
Mirella's a member of the Tiny Rascal Gang.
On the Fresno Police Departments's Facebook page, Mirella is described as a "TRG Gang Member." "TRG" stands for the Tiny Rascal Gang, which may sound cute, but it's actually a violent California crime ring with over 10,000 members. According to Wikipedia, members are generally of Cambodian descent — though some Latinos have been minority members — and must endure a beating and commit a serious crime to join.

Mugshot Bae was arrested with a lilac-colored gun.
Mirella was been charged with two felony counts of carrying a concealed firearm and carrying a stolen firearm. The loaded gun that got her in trouble was a purple Taurus 709 slim pistol. She also had 7 bullets with her at the time of the arrest.
Mirella's a mother.
According to the police department, "Ponce was with her infant child and two other gang members when she was stopped." It is unclear what happened to her baby when she was booked and sent to jail.
Fans are already offering to pay her bail.
Mirella's bail has been set at $100,000, $50,000 for each charge, but that shouldn't be a problem consider droves of admirers were coming forward hoping to save her. "I’m sending her some money for her books," began one fan. "Shoot I might just bail her out."
A similar frenzy occurred when Jeremy Meeks' mugshot went viral. He was given a modelling contract before he even got out of prison, and since then he's managed to turn his life around and leave crime behind. We hope for the sake of Mirella and her baby that the same happens for her.
