Two men have been arrested after it was suspected that they were planning to kidnap and kill singer Joss Stone. The two men were picked up outside Joss Stone’s house in Devon and were found in possession of a body bag along with swords and a rope.
A source revealed, "The pair were brought in on Tuesday morning and are in the cells. They are being quizzed about a plot to cause Joss Stone really serious harm. They have their solicitors with them but the police want to know what lies behind this." The insider then added, It looks like this pair had an A-Z of what they were planning to do. A body bag, swords and maps of where she lives in mid Devon were recovered. It looks like they were going to do her really nasty harm if they didn't get what they wanted."
Detective Inspector Steve Parker, the chief investigator on the case explained, "The two men in custody had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items that lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence. Police enquiries continue and the men remain in custody." Joss Stone is due to tour Europe next month and is being informed of any progress.
