But a citizen’s arrest led to the man’s capture by Bang Khen police nearby.

The “bomb” – wrapped in black tape – was shown to be nothing more than a fake after EOD experts were called.

Taken into custody in a state of what appeared drunkenness was 40 year old Chayan Malithong, reported Daily News.

He walked into the bank near closing time on Sunday and handed a note to teller Usawadee Nahuaythong.

It said: “Put the money in the bag…….I have a bomb (be calm)”. He then repeated the threat verbally and a scared Usawadee complied.

A customer realized what had transpired and the alarm was raised leading to a citizen’s arrest.
