New details have emerged about the bizarre kidnapping plot involving pin-up singer Joss Stone, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
The 30-year-old man was arrested for driving whilst disqualified, possession of an offensive weapon and going equipped to burgle or steal.
Following further enquiries conducted after the arrests, the men are also now being detained on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and conspiracy to murder.
Suspicious neighbors called the police after they spotted the men circling the property in a small red Fiat Punto car.
It was not known if 24-year-old Stone was at home before the arrests took place but her mother Wendy Joseph was seen leaving the property today.
Detective Inspector Steve Parker, leading the investigation, said: “The two men in custody had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items which lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence.
“Our officers are currently carrying out reassurance patrols and it’s important to stress that no properties have been burgled and no individuals have been harmed.”
Hailed as the 'white Aretha Franklin' Stone has enjoyed chart success on both sides of the Atlantic – amassing an estimated fortune of $15 million in the process.
The singer is friends with Prince William and Kate Middleton - she was among the guests at the recent royal wedding.
