The Tha Phon Police in Phetchabun Province received notification on April 27 of an item that is suspected to be a bomb. The item was a paper box with a digital clock taped to the front connected to the electric wires from inside the box.

The officials at the Tha Phon Station then notified the Phetchabun Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team (EOD) and the local rescue team.

When officials arrived they saw a paper box, which was about 15 centimetres wide, with a digital clock that was still running.

Officials quickly placed a car tire around the box before informing the villagers near the area to evacuate.
