SRIRACHA – March 2, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; a report of a man finding a bomb planted in front of his house was received by Pol. Lt. Col. Suthin Nilyaem, investigation officer, Sriracha police station. The victim was identified as Mr. Sombat Changphuphlangarm, age 43, a construction worker living on Soi Sonthaya 13 inTambon Surasak.

Arriving at the scene, officers discovered an M26 type bomb ready to explode, with a deadly radius of 15 meters. The police brought a tire to cover the bomb, and coordinated with the bomb disposal unit to retrieve the bomb.

Mr. Sombat told police that he and his wife had borrowed money from a loan shark for 2,000 THB, and had to pay interest for 400 THB per month. But they didn’t pay for several months.

Then on March 1, the creditor came to his house to ask for the overdue payments. They had a severe quarrel, and the creditor took out a gun to threaten Mr. Sombat before he left. The next morning, Mr. Sombat opened the front door of his house and found the bomb ready to detonate.

The police later questioned the creditor and also inspected his gun, which they found to be fake. The creditor denied planting the bomb to police, saying that the small amount of money owed to him was not reason enough to kill Mr. Sombat.

However, the creditor told police that Mr. Sombat and his wife had borrowed money from many other loan creditors. So it was possible the other creditors got angry when Mr. Sombat and his wife didn’t pay their debts, and planted the bomb in front of their house. Police will continue to track down the trouble maker to prosecute further according to the law.
