So profitable was the Atlanta and L.A.-based Black Mafia Family that the cocaine crew could afford to lose a million dollars every now and then.
For example, consider a 2003 Hummer H2 stretch limo that was parked at one of BMF's stash houses off Mount Paran Road. The limo was described yesterday during the sentencing hearing for the rapper Barima "Bleu DaVinci" McKnight, a BMF member who'd been indicted in Atlanta.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert McBurney told the court that in late 2004, BMF leader Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory correctly suspected that the stash house a modern mansion affectionately dubbed "Space Mountain" was about to be raided. Authorities believe Meech's minions quickly moved at least 100 kilos out of the home.
There was just one problem: a car was blocking the limo, and stash house workers didn't have the keys. So the limo was abandoned. Federal agents who later raided the house confiscated the stretch Hummer. They searched its interior and found nothing unusual. It was sold at auction and passed through four more owners. Then, the governemt got a tip that they might not have searched the limo thoroughly enough.
After tracking down the Hummer two months ago, agents discovered secret compartments that they'd missed during the first go-around. Inside, they found seven, semi-automatic weapons and nearly $900,000 cash.
Just imagine how many prom-bound teenagers must have graced the limo's seats, oblivious to the fortune that sat beneath them.
