French couple face jail over Sardinian sand theft

A French couple are facing jail time for stealing 90 pounds of sand from Sardinia. They poured white sand into 14 plastic bottles from Chia, a beach in southern Sardinia, and put them in the trunk of their SUV saying they were taking it home as a souvenir. They were caught on a ferry en route to Toulon, France.

So that's not a "bring your own sand" beach?

I remember hearing about an entire beach getting stolen overnight in Jamaica. The sand will get used in building materials like sandcrete or will be sold as an ingredient for concrete.
