Bolivian authorities say they believe it was intended to be picked up by gang members to set up a cocaine production centre or false commercial enterprise.

The US bank notes came in a number of different denominations and were wrapped with a seal from a Paraguayan bank.

Three people were detained and guns and vehicles were also seized as a result of the money being intercepted.

Bolivia is one of the top three cocaine producers in the world, according to the UN.
