Construction crews working near Samae San’s Rim Talay Resort unearthed a mortar shell at least a decade old.
Sattahip police were notified March 17 and called in naval ordinance specialists to defuse the shell, which was found by a drain pipe about 20 centimeters below ground.
Bomb squad members said the ordinance had been used and no longer contained a trigger, only a rusty shell with some gunpowder inside. It posed no threat.
The 10-year-old ordinance was destroyed and no one was injured.
