The squad transferred the weapons, which were found at a property owned by Hataithip Duangjan in Muang district, pending their destruction.

Security officials and an explosive ordnance disposal team were alerted at about 8am by workers who were constructing a fence for Hataithip when they found the explosives.

Some of the explosives were reportedly still active.
