A drug dealer has sent social media into a frenzy over his good looks despite being jailed for three years for cannabis crimes.
Stephen Perry, 29, of Derby was part of an Albanian-led drugs gang who were locked up after their web of cannabis farms were busted in raids across the country.
He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cannabis – but that wasn’t what Twitter users were concerned about, with several swooning over the tattooed drug dealer’s appearance.
After a mugshot of Stephen alongside other gang members was shared on social media by Derbyshire Police, hoards of users fawned over the criminal joking that they would ‘wait for him’ and had ‘always wanted a pen pal’.

‘How do I go about gaining a visitors permit for Stephen please? Asking for a friend’, asked one besotted user.
‘Always wanted a pen pal, think Steve is the one’, wrote another.
‘If Stephen needs anything at all, at all, tell him to hmu xoxo’, commented a third.
One user even requested to follow the criminal on Instagram while another joked about his innocence insisting: ‘Stephen didn’t do anything it was all me please release him’.

The post, which also pictured Egi Tafa, Callum Clarke, Brett Simpson, Mirand Koci and Mevlan Koci, racked up over 800 quote tweets and over 200 likes.
However some users were baffled by the internet’s attraction to the drug dealer, with one describing Stephen’s admirers as ‘desperate’.
In a statement, Derbyshire Police said: ‘An Albanian-led drugs gang has been jailed after its web of cannabis grows were busted in raids across the country.
‘During a series of coordinated raids in Doncaster, Mansfield, Nottingham, King’s Lynn, Birmingham and Sandiacre last year – cannabis with a street value estimated at more than £500,000 was discovered.

‘Officers were led to the addresses after months of investigation into the gang led by Albanian gang leader Egi Tafa.
‘The 24-year-old, along with right-hand man Mevlan Koci, teamed up with Derby-based drug dealer Stephen Perry to produce hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of cannabis.
‘The drugs were grown by a team of Albanian gardeners who tended to the drugs in properties across the UK.
‘The drugs, once cultivated, were then supplied to Midlands-based dealers Brett Simpson and Callum Clarke who then sold to users across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Staffordshire.’
