Two men were arrested Tuesday for suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder singer Joss Stone in England, the BBC has reported, after they were discovered near her home in Devon with swords, a map of the singer’s home, and a body bag.
“Police attended an address in Cullompton after alert residents notified officers about a suspicious-looking vehicle,” said the Devon and Cornwall police. “Officers attended the area at around 10 a.m. and subsequently arrested the occupants of a red Fiat Punto. Major crime detectives are continuing to investigate.” It remains unclear whether Stone was home at the time of the arrest of the two men, who remain unidentified but are aged 33 and 30.
“Joss is aware of the arrests and police are keeping her updated with developments,” a spokesperson for Stone said in a statement.
