Police are looking for beach thieves
Jamaican police have been criticized for their ineptitude, because in three months she was unable to find the perpetrators of the audacious theft of hundreds of tons of sand from a picturesque beach on the north coast – informed the BBC. 500 trucks of white sand were hauled out of the place, where the Coral Springs resort was to be built, costing almost 110 mln USD. Disappearance of the most important element of the investment, 400-meter long beach, put these plans in question. Detectives think, that someone from the competition attempted the sand. Despite the lack of results of the investigation, the authorities ensured, that the matter is treated as a priority. Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding himself demanded an explanatory report, how it was possible to steal so much sand, transport, and finally presumably to sell. The opposition People's National Party even suspects, that someone is hiding the perpetrators. Deputy commander of the Jamaican police, Mark Shields, however, assured, that's not the case, although there is a suspicion, that the policemen could collude with the thieves. – This is a very complex investigation, because it has so many aspects – he explained.
