Two men have been arrested under suspicion that they were plotting to murder and rob singer Joss Stone.

The BBC reports that police were called to the area near Stone’s home in Devon, England, to investigate a suspicious vehicle on Tuesday. A senior police source confirmed the men arrested, aged 33 and 30, were found with swords and a body bag. Plans of the singer’s home, including aerial photos and maps, were reportedly also found.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their concern, but I'm absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their inquiries,” Stone said in a statement Wednesday.
