Four grenades found in box returned to Bangkok courier service

Bangkok, Thailand – A package stuffed with four M67 grenades was sent back to sender after the Bangkok courier service couldn’t locate the recipient.

The staff of the privately owned Kerry Express on Phahon Yothin Road in the capital’s Bang Khen district, alerted the police when they found out the contents of the package.

Bang Khen police together with the Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team, arrived early Friday afternoon to examine explosive-like objects found inside the package.

Authorities found four grenades with 5-10 metre killing radius inside the box and secured them for further inspection, The Nation reported.

According to records, the sender was Isarapong (last name withheld), with no return address other than “Bangkok.” The parcel was sent to a certain Mr. Max of Nikhon district in Chon Buri.

Kerry Express employee Ratchanikorn Sujipratch, 37, said the box was sent to the recipient on May 6 but was returned to the sender. The employees stored the package for seven days waiting for someone to claim it.

But when the employees opened the box when clearing unclaimed boxes, they found the grenades inside.
