According to the Independent.ie “Michael Smallhorn (57) was to get paid €200 to act as a courier, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard.
A search of a Citroen car parked on the lane around the corner recovered 5.9 kilos of heroin.
After his arrest Smallhorn told gardaí that he was paid by an unidentified man to leave the keys for the Citroen on the wheel.
The man told him to go and have a cup of tea and in the meantime someone was going to come to the car, pop the boot and take something from it. He was told he would be paid €200 for this but he never got this money.
He said he wanted the money to pay his golf fees. Judge Pauline Codd said: “I’m having difficulty assessing his motivation in getting involved”.” – Irish Independent
