The DEA estimates his operation is worth $270 million in cash and another $20 million in assets from cocaine sales. Meechie is known to regularly spend $50,000 a night while clubbing at the strip clubs.
“The BMF was a sophisticated drug smuggling and money laundering organization, led by brothers that operated in 11 U.S. states and had direct links to Mexico-based drug trafficking organizations,” said DEA Administrator Karen P. Tandy. DEA, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (IRS - CI) and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Michigan joined forces in Operation Motor City Mafia, a 2-year Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) investigation coordinated by DEA’s Special Operations Division (SOD) that began on October 28, 2003.
Information gathered during the investigation revealed that the BMF distributed thousands of kilograms of cocaine and laundered millions of dollars in drug proceeds. BMF members and associates were responsible for trafficking approximately 2,500 kilos of cocaine monthly through their Atlanta hub.
This is what the AJC reported: "In Atlanta, the group was so brazen it threw elaborate parties featuring zoo animals, ran up bar tabs of thousands of dollars and boasted about its existence with a billboard [The World is B.M.F's].
The two kingpins of the operation, Detroit brothers Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory and Terry "Southwest T" Flenory, ran an enterprise that was a model of criminal efficiency, according to scores of pages of court documents. The two brothers, who are now in custody, face trial on 13 federal charges in Detroit in November.
Demetrius Flenory allegedly ran the operation's Atlanta hub while Terry Flenory was based in Los Angeles, according to federal authorities.
The newest indictment states that the BMF distributed cocaine across the country, using hidden compartments inside cars. The BMF acquired driver's licenses under fake names for their "mules" by bribing an official who worked for Tennessee state government, who provided the licenses, the indictment says.
The BMF members were better known by their aliases and nicknames that seem straight out of Soprano-like underworld fiction — "Big Meech," "Wimp," "White Boy," "B-Smooth," "Mad Ball" and "Pig Triplet."
The traffickers had an elaborate system for laundering the $270 million in cash federal authorities said they made distributing cocaine: They purchased jewelry, acquired real estate through straw buyers and, in some cases, bought winning lottery tickets, paying more than they were worth, then cashing in the tickets [$1 million worth of tickets].
The Flenory brothers got their start in big-time cocaine trafficking in their hometown of Detroit where Demetrius picked up his first major arrest in 1988 when he was arrested with less than 2 ounces of cocaine.
"Big Meech," as he was known, beat the rap because he was a youthful offender. But he already had learned the ropes of drug trafficking, according to federal authorities, and soon he and his brother were running a web of drug enterprises connecting Detroit, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
Flenory started BMF Entertainment in Atlanta, which purported to be a record label specializing in rap music artists and gangster-style videos, according to court papers filed in the Detroit federal case. BMF also published a rap magazine, Juice, and hosted a Web site.
Flenory claimed he made $20,000 to $30,000 a month as the BMF Entertainment CEO, even though the business never had incorporated or filed a federal tax form, according to federal court documents [one artist signed (Bleu Da Vinci) with no hits]. That money, combined with the alleged $270 million the traffickers laundered in 15 years of selling cocaine, bankrolled a high-flying lifestyle of luxury cars, private jets and diamond-encrusted crosses.
At his home, Flenory threw parties where live animals — a tiger, zebra and gorilla — were part of the entertainment.
At restaurants such as Justin's on Peachtree Road in Buckhead, he hobnobbed with hip-hop royalty after he and his entourage arrived in Bentleys, BMWs and Maseratis. Flenory would buy the drinks, cases of Cristal champagne, and pick up bar tabs that ran into the tens of thousands of dollars.
Members of Flenory's entourage wore diamonds and Rolexes and often carried powerful firearms. The BMF was famous for raining money in clubs by tossing thousands of dollars so the cash floated onto patrons.
In 2003, in a nod to Flenory's prominence in the hip-hop world, producer and music mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs threw a 35th birthday party for Flenory at Justin's, which Combs owns. A photograph from the evening shows Combs with his arm around Flenory.
A few months later, Flenory's world began to unravel when he was involved in the Nov. 11, 2003, shootout that killed two of Combs' friends in front of Club Chaos in Buckhead. A witness told Atlanta police she saw Flenory pull a handgun out of his waistband just before the shootout that killed Lamont Girdy, 38, and Anthony "Wolf" Jones, a former bodyguard for Combs.
Flenory was arrested but not indicted. There have been no other arrests.
The shooting victims had wads of cash: $7,000 in Jones' pocket; $5,000 in Girdy's.
"That's pocket change to them [literally]," said Al Dixon, a former Fulton County senior prosecutor who was in charge of the criminal case.The incident brought attention to the Flenory brothers' Black Family Mafia. And the federal government soon launched the investigation that has put both brothers behind bars and yielded the latest round of indictments."
