Three Brazilian men were armed with a rusty submachine gun and the wrong ammunition for a shotgun when they were on their way to shoot up a property in a Midlands town, a court has heard.
One of the men admitted to gardaí during interview that they intended to threaten someone by firing at the house but denied it was a murder mission.
Evidence of their foiled plot, which included a driver who was tasked with collecting the weapons getting lost twice en route, was heard in Tullamore Circuit Court yesterday.
