Mega sand theft site found in Selangor

RAWANG: Sand theft in Selangor has worsened with the latest discovery of another sand-mining area the size of three football fields.

It is believed to be the state's biggest illegal sand-mining activity detected by the authorities so far.

The Hulu Selangor land office discovered it near SKC Kampung Timah in Bukit Beruntung here during an enforcement raid against sand thieves last week.

The culprits bolted during the raid, leaving behind an excavator and a lorry.

Assistant district officer Mohd Rohib Misnan said the illegal activity had been going on for the last six months, acknowledging, however, that it was difficult to catch the thieves.
