Another explosive device thought to be linked to the double bomb attacks that rocked Hua Hin last week was found in the town centre on Sunday.
Police confirmed the device, which was found at Chat Chai Market, was similar to those used in the bomb attacks in Nakhon Sri Thammarat and Surat Thani.
Pol Lt Gen Charnthep Sesawet said the device contained a mobile phone and matches and after speaking with witnesses believed the device was planted on Wednesday by three men.
He urged the public to remain vigilant and report anything they consider to be unusual.
There were also unconfirmed reports on Thai social media that police investigated three more suspicious devices found near Market Village and another at Chat Chai market on Sunday.
Meanwhile authorities have confirmed that a number of schools in Hua Hin will remain closed on Monday including Yamsaard School, Hua Hin Salesian School, Tedsaban Ban Hua Hin School, Wat Nong Kae Municipality School Hua Hin and Sethavidhya School Hua Hin.
The latest developments come as police on Sunday confirmed the discovery of another two unexploded devices in Phuket.
The first device was found at Paradise Park Plaza in Patong, while another was later found next to a clothes shop in China Town.
Police confirmed both devices were the same type as those used in the previous attacks in Patong and Phang Nga.
Over the weekend, deputy police chief Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen confirmed that those responsible for the attacks remained at large but said that officers were close to issuing arrest warrant for some of the suspects.
Pol Gen Pongsapat denied earlier reports that two suspects had been arrested, saying that police had only questions two witnesses.
Pol Gen Pongsapat also declared the situation in Thailand had returned to normal and urged people to continue with their lives as normal.Facebook.
