Four men accused of planning a terrorist plot in New York City are being held without bail after their arraignments this week.
James Cromitie, Laguerre Payen, David Williams and Onta Williams will remain in custody until their next court appearance on June 5, according to CNN.
The men were arrested Wednesday night after placing explosive devices in cars near two synagogues. The arrests followed a year-long FBI investigation.
They also planned to attack a nearby Air Nation Guard base by firing surface-to-air missiles.
Vincent Briccett, criminal defense attorney for Cromitie, Williams and Williams, declined comment at the court hearing. At Payen’s hearing, held later, his defense attorney claimed her client suffered from mental instability and was taking prescription drugs for depression and bi-polar disorder.
