Update: ‘BMF’ Star Lil Meech Grand Theft Charges Dropped, Actor Was Arrested For Allegedly Stealing $250K Richard Mille Watch
Update: It looks like Lil Meech’s legal problems are behind him!
According to new reports, the first-degree grand theft charges against Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory for allegedly swindling several Miami jewelers out of high-end watches have been dismissed. Lil Meech shared the update via his IG page and wrote,
“God is Good. Case Dropped. Please Don’t Play With My Top.”
Original Story: BMF star Lil Meech was arrested for grand theft after allegedly stealing a $250,000 Richard Mille watch!
The 22-year-old actor/rapper got booked on two counts of first-degree grand theft and a separate count of organized fraud on March 14. According to reports, the alleged robbery took place back in February, when Lil Meech (born Demetrius Flenory Jr.) put a down payment on the Richard Mille watch using his $80,000 platinum Rolex at Miami’s Haimov Jewelers. However, he allegedly failed to pay the remaining $200K balance and never returned the watch.
Police also accused Lil Meech of trying to trade the watch for another Richard Mille at a different store, despite not owning it in full. Records reveal Meech was released on bond the same day he was arrested.
Lil Meech’s co-star Davinchi took to social media claiming that he helped bail Meech out of jail. He said,
“I just want ya’ll to know we just bailed my n**a out cuz we gotta finish season 2. We gotta finish season 2, 3, 4 and 5. The bail was $1.4 Million.”
