Couple Charged With Stealing 90 Pounds Of Sand From An Italian Beach

Sure, it’s nice to have a little souvenir from vacation to remember your summer travels by, but stealing 90 pounds of sand from a beach is probably not the best way to do that.

A  couple is facing a real life dungeon for stealing nearly 90 pounds of sand from the Italian island of Sardinia.

Known for its picturesque beaches, an Italian newspaper reported the couple allegedly wanted something to take back home with them. They face up to six years in jail if convicted of the theft.

Sand theft from the island has become a concern. A law passed in 2017 makes sand, pebble, and shell trading illegal.

Son of a beach!
