Over 520 kg of cocaine was found inside an abandoned vehicle on the banks of the Panama Canal, officials said.

The vehicle was abandoned a short distance from the Bridge of the Americas, the National Police said on Sunday.

The occupants apparently abandoned the vehicle when they spotted a police checkpoint on the approach to the bridge.

The narcotics were dredged up from the canal and were deposited close to the Bridge of the Americas, police said.
