Thieves Steal An Entire Beach


Hungary: Thieves have stolen an entire artificial beach including rides, huts, shops, and 6,000 cubic metres of sand from the town of Mindszentas. Hungary doesn't have any natural beaches so an artificial one had been created on the banks of a river.

Hungary is part of the Schengen zone which means there are no border controls between it and other EU states. It is thought that the stolen material has been shipped across the border to be sold.

"It is crazy - I would have thought it was impossible to steal an entire beach. It was cleaned up and covered for the winter and then suddenly this week we saw that it had totally disappeared - beach and all," said Etelka Repas from council.

  you'd think  
that'd be kinda hard to miss. unless it was like-what's that movie-The Great Escape where they stick sand in their pockets, walk across the border and empty it out but still... that's alot of sand.
