Two men have been arrested over an alleged plot to kidnap British singer Joss Stone.
The unnamed suspects, aged 30 and 33, were taken into custody and questioned on Tuesday after they were allegedly found circling Stone's home with swords, rope and a body bag in their car, according to a report in Britain's The Sun newspaper.
Neighbors alerted cops to the pair, who were also said to be in possession of maps and aerial photos of the soul star's farmhouse in Devon, England.
Detective Inspector Steve Parker says, "The men had information and items that lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offense."
Stone, who is worth an estimated $14 million, is not believed to have been at her house at the time.
