WHEN she walked into the shop, she was slender.
But when she left she was too fat!
And when the metal detector at the door sounded the alarm, she had to shed her loot – pound by pound!
A video caught the whole thing on tape, and shows how the fat “thief” was stopped and taken back into the store.
It then shows the suspect removing goods hidden under her clothes one by one – from panties to baby clothes! Some are removed from her panties and bra while shoppers watch in shock.
In the video it appears that the suspect at one stage refuses to shed all her goods, and a shop employee can be seen ordering her to remove all of it.
The video then shows the woman being handcuffed by security and led to the back of the store, where police are waiting. The incident is believed to have happened at a mall in Ekurhuleni.
