Following news that two New Mexico men have been detained on suspicion of being involved in an alleged plot to murder pop sensation Justin Bieber, a rep for the singer has released an official statement to ET.
"We take every precaution to protect and ensure the safety of Justin and his fans," says the rep.
According to police documents obtained by ET, police believe that a New Mexico prisoner named Dana Martin, serving out two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl, enlisted the help of former fellow inmate Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane to carry out four murders. Two of the reported targets were Justin Bieber and his bodyguard.
The papers then allege that what ultimately foiled the plot was Martin himself inexplicably turning in his co-conspirators. Staake was reportedly arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants, while his nephew made it to New York, where police say he was arrested with "murder tools and pruning shears."
