Bolivia finds $1m tossed from airplane

03 October 2013, 09:00

La Paz - Bolivian officials say they've found $1 million in a bag tossed from an airplane.

Government Minister Carlos Romero says anti-drug police spotted a man who was signalling to a low-flying plane at a clandestine landing strip.

As the plane swooped low, a bag filled with money was tossed out.

Romero says police arrested three people and seized two vehicles, a rifle and an automatic weapon during Sunday's operation in Tigre, a town in Santa Cruz state.

The plane was not identified and escaped. He says the operation foiled plans to create a drug factory.

Bolivian officials defend use of coca as a traditional stimulant, but try to prosecute those who try to turn it into cocaine and trade in it.
