Lil Meech, the BMF actor and son of Big Meech, was arrested for grand larceny after allegedly stealing a $250,000 Richard Mille watch.
TMZ reports that the alleged theft took place in February, when Lil Meech dropped off his $80,000 platinum Rolex for payment on the new watch at Haimov Jewelers in Miami. He is charged with failing to pay the remaining balance and has since been convicted of two counts of first-degree theft and a separate count of organized fraud on March 14.
Police also accused Meech of trying to swap the watch for another Richard Millie at another store, even though he didn’t fully own it. He was reportedly released on bail the day of his arrest.
Meech plays in BMF as his father and Black Mafia Family founder, Big Meech, and for the second season, showrunner 50 Cent has big plans. He previously announced Mo’Nique as a new addition to the set, after urging Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry to apologize for allegedly “blackballing” her in the past.
“I’m talking to Tyler today, he told me he never told anyone not to hire @therealmoworldwide and he’s glad he decided to work with her,” 50 wrote on Instagram. “He said he couldn’t speak for Oprah, but he’s sure she agrees with Monique and has even brought her up for things Monique has no idea about. I’m so happy for Mo right now !
Earlier this year, Fif joked about Lil Meech over a video of a woman saying the actor smelled “musty” and like a “pound of onions.” Meech said the woman was “lying between her teeth, faking a shot.”
“@llimeechbmf is getting so fast the hate is starting,” Fif wrote on Instagram. “She said you smell like a bag of onion LMAO Nah dat’s Creed baby the gold bottle. LOL.”
