The Former world’s fattest man who stole £197-worth of medicines, toiletries and even a Star Wars toy, has been fined £43 for shoplifting by a judge in Orange, Massachusetts. Paul Mason who once tipped the scales at 70 stone, now faces returning to the UK for surgery on his knees and gastric band.

The suspect who now weighs 34 stone, was spotted trying to make off with the goods from the store in the town on May 13 this year. The former postal worker – who had slimmed down to 19 stone before piling on the pounds after splitting with his fiancee, was seen putting items into a bag before he attempted to leave the Walmart on his electric mobility scooter without paying for them and further set off an alarm.

  1. Really ? Maybe hunger made him lost some weight . Stealing Is bad . I hope he gets a good atleast to maintain

  2. Hmmmmn,, things are really happening,, does it mean he saved those things inside his body? Because I don’t really interesting

  3. Maybe he has been doing secreatly, and finally is been cut.
    i wise him best of luck.
    Lolz!

  4. Well I must say he has his reason who knows maybe he did that intentionally in other to be caught, he’s old for such act of stealing meanwhile lets just keep our fingers crossed

  5. Wow! How could he has gone to the store just to steal. I’m sure something prompted him to do what he did. The important thing here is him finding way to work on himself and get a job to do

  6. What did I just read???? This old man caught for stealing toys??? Nooooooooooo something must be wrong somewhere, they should take him to a psychologist to check if he is mentally stable. What is a man of his age going to do with a toy? If it’s other items those one are understandable bcoz something people need on daily basis except he has kids whom he wants to give the toys to.

  7. This is very weird…Is it lack of money or what? If this was in Africa, I would have said it is spiritual.

  8. I think the man is depressed, adding excessive weight because he separated from the girlfriend, now he shoplifted.He needs medical attention.

  9. That is childish and immature of him, may be his mental health is not stable. It’s good he has slimmed down to 19 stones. He should continue slimming down. Obesity is a disease.

  10. I can’t in the news, because how much are they selling the toy but if it was true what a pity for him.

  11. But will he shoplift? Doesn’t he have money to buy stuff? Well he should pay the fine adhere to instructions

  12. Imagine the cheap things he went to steal that will bring his reputation down to nothing, they should charge him to court without delay

  13. Alaye Wetin do you nah, how could you commit theft, not even something of good quality, Toy for that matter, what a childish play

  14. Maybe he need more fame than he had cos its so absurd of him stealing toiletries and toys in such place and he knew what was at stake.

  15. U have disgrace yoursef man. What a shameful act u committed.. Continue to slim down… Waiting to see your new look

  16. That’s very bad of him,is nice he can’t afford them why not leave for some other day,well he should face Hus punishment

  17. This is bad to hear why should he involve him self in such an inresponsible act that’s too bad I wish he’ll be out soon.

  18. hahahha this man wanted to know how it feels to be smart by trying to steal without being caught there are other ways of trying to learn smartness

  19. This is really funny,what is he want to do with toy, let just say he has his reason who knows maybe he did that intentionally in other to be caught, he’s old for such act of stealing meanwhile lets just keep our fingers crossed, this is sound somehow
