Pol.Col. Tharmmanoon revealed that previously there was a 10-wheeled-truck driver who had parked his truck so he could go to the toilet under a tree where he found the suspicious bum bag which had been left under the tree so he notified the police. From inspecting the bombs, the officers found that they were rather new and still live. They assumed that the owner might have hidden them there because he was afraid of being caught with them due to the laws The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) had announced.
