Who Stole the Beach?

Jamaican authorities are puzzled by the theft... of a beach.

According to reports, some 500 truckloads of beach went missing in July. As a good beach is considered valuable to hotels and the sand was lifted from the site of a planned resort, certain suspects have taken top-billing.

But since no arrests have been made, the police have come under fire. Jamaican police are notoriously corrupt and given the type of sand stolen, those in the hotel business are the most likely culprits. The chief openly admits this is part of the problem: they suspect collusion.

But where has the sand gone and how and when was it moved?
