    50 kilos of cocaine were in a bag inside the boat and the authorities suspect that the occupants may have released some packages of drugs into the sea to get rid of the evidence.

    The National Guard was in charge of the high-speed operation, which took place in difficult conditions due to strong waves prevailing in the area.

    “Despite the intense search of the area, it was not possible to find the crew of the suspect vessel, since after they ran into the jungle, they presumably fled to Panama because of the proximity of the border,” said the Ministry of Security. (EFE)
