The Rolling Stone Blog

Two men in Devon, England have been detained for planning to rob and murder British soul singer Joss Stone. The men were arrested for possessing an offensive weapon and carrying burgling equipment near Stone's home in rural Cullompton after neighbors reported a suspicious vehicle. Though there has been no official word on the questioning, it appears that the two had no personal motivation to target Stone and were simply out for her money.

According to the Sun, investigators found swords, rope, a body bag and detailed maps and aerial photos of Stone's estate upon searching the vehicle.

Stone, a member of Mick Jagger's new supergroup Super Heavy, did not come into contact with the men. Both men, who traveled over 200 miles to Stone's estate from Manchester, are still being questioned by authorities on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder.
