It appears people really will steal anything these days. This story comes from Jamaica where police are investigating the theft of hundreds of tons of sand from a popular beach. In July around 500 truck loads of sand were removed from outside a planned resort at Coral Spring beach. There are suspects, particularly people within the tourism sector, as a good beach is seen as a valuable asset to hotels on the island but no arrests have made since July leading to criticism of the police. The theft of the sand has meant that the plans for the resort have now been put on hold because the most important feature, the white sand beach has now disappeared. It must be fairly hard to hide thousands of tons of sand, I'm guessing it won't long before it shows up on a new beach somewhere.
