An old artillery shell found near Mabprachan Reservoir caused worry, but no injuries.

Police were called to the Moo 3 village entrance to the lake where the old and rusted shell, 10 centimeters wide and 30 centimeters long, was found.

Ordinance-disposal experts from the 14th Military Circle arrived to inspect the round, determined it was in no danger of exploding and took it away.

Army Lt. Winai Duangthong speculated it probably was ditched by somebody in the area who knew it was illegal to possess and could be dangerous to themselves.
