AceShowbiz - Lil Meech's watch-stealing case is yet to be over. After news broke that he got released from prison following an alleged theft arrest, Haimov Jewelers put the "BMF" star on blast for "trading" an unpaid watch he took from them.
Haimov spoke up against the 22-year-old via Instagram Story. "Haimov jewelers Is a family business. You cannot trade a watch that wasn't paid for to another jeweler And take the next jewelers watch and not pay them as well," they penned. "We all work hard for our money and do clean business."
"We reached out many many times but you ignore. If someone owed you 200k would you let it slide?" the Miami-based jewelers further argued. "We put our blood sweat and tears into making this business successful We came from the buttom!"
Lil Meech was arrested "on two counts of first-degree grand theft and a separate count of organized fraud on March 14." According to police report obtained by TMZ, he walked into Haimov Jewelers in February and put a down payment on the Richard Mille using his $80,000 platinum Rolex.
Unfortunately, the Detroit native failed to pay the remaining $200,000 balance and never returned the item. Police further alleged that the rapper tried to trade the watch for a different Richard Mille piece at a different store.
Lil Meech, whose real name is Demetrius Flenory Jr., didn't spend a long time behind bars as he was let go on the same day after posting some bond. In a now-viral video shared on Instagram, a friend of Meech said, "I just want y'all to know we just bailed my n***a 'cause we gotta finish season 2, 3, 4, 5." Meanwhile, the actor, who's standing next to his pal, later unveiled that he paid $1.4 million to get out of jail.
