English Defence League leaders, Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll have been held by police and searched on Wednesday over fears that the pair were planning to kidnap N-Dubz singer and former ex-factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos.
The pair were filming a video outside the TV star's Hertfordshire mansion moments earlier, begging money from supporters to cover the £8000 costs of a lost High Court action against the Metropolitan Police after they banned the far right group from holding a race hate demo in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Officers launched a major operation after two strange men were seen acting shiftily outside her luxury mansion and feared that the hapless pair were about to kidnap the 25 year old.
Shortly afterwards the two leaders were stopped by police and their car stripped down, with Tommy Robinson complaining on Twitter about police harassment and claimed it was in connection with a burglary.
A Hertfordshire Police spokesperson yesterday told the Daily Mirror: "Police were called at just gone 10.20pm on September 11 to a property in Brookmans Park to reports of a suspicious vehicle outside a property.
"Officers were in attendance and located the vehicle. Two men were subsequently spoken with and searched. The surrounding area was also searched. No arrests were made."
This video was filmed on the before their Tower Hamlet's demo outside her house
The follow up video was filmed on the day in question after the pair had earlier attended Westminster Magistrates Court to answer charges of obstructing police
Robinson claimed on Twitter that he did not know it was her house and his friend lives next door and they just pulled into a layby to shoot the begging video, which does not explain the fact that he had already filmed a video there previously.
This is not the only run in with the police that Robinson has had recently, last Saturday he was arrested and charged with incitement after their Tower Hamlets demonstration.

We are not too sure why the English Defence League keep coming back to London. They are routinely humiliated when they visit, the vast majority of the residents in London detest the sight of them, and the police routinely give them the hardest time possible.
It is never a nice day out for them. Their last major visit was Walthamstow last autumn, where their march was blocked by Londoners, they were kettled and soiled themselves, and leaders Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll fled back to Luton whilst their 'foot soldiers' were mass arrested, leaving the door open for BNP leader Nick Griffin to offer to pick up their legal bills.
Their last demo in London was in Whitehall where they shamelessly tried to exploit the death of drummer Lee Rigby and 'paid respect' to him by pulling Nazi salutes beside the womens war memorial, which ended up on the front page of the Metro for hundreds of thousands of London commuters to see.
The last time they were suppose to protest in Tower Hamlets, the nearest they were allowed to get to the Borough was Aldgate, and this time is no different. But Tommy Robinson has managed to con some money from his supporters to fight a fantasy hearing in the High Court.
The Mayor Of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman had wanted to stop the EDL entering Tower Hamlets because he suspected violence and disorder due to their reputation and online threats made by many EDL'ers. Their last attempt at a demo in the area resulted in a journalist being attacked and set on fire making Mayor Rahman's concerns for the safety of the residents rather valid.
The following info graphic shows where they want to go and also shows where the Met Police will make them go.
He asked the Police to ban the march, but they refused to do so, so he applied to the High Court. The High Court would not order the Police to ban the march, so he appealed against this decision and was due to have a hearing of appeal today.
The Police decided to ban the EDL entering Tower Hamlets regardless, so the Mayor withdrew his appeal as he had got the result he was asking for, making his appeal superfluous.
In the meantime, Tommy Robinson decided he would get a barrister to go along to the appeal at the High Court, and argue against the Mayor in the hope of having the EDL demo allowed into Tower Hamlets.
The well worn EDL begging bowl was soon dusted off and Tommy requested donations from his gullible followers, claiming he had his OWN High Court hearing, to overrule the decision of the Met Police so they could march into Tower Hamlets.
Hoping to raise loads of cash from the donations he was looking at making a small fortune by spinning this as an important case for EDL.
Judge Mr Justice King ruled that the police decision was reasonable and proportionate, following Mayor Rahman's High Court hearing. He blocked any EDL attempt to pursue a judicial review.
Tommy is now claiming he did not raise enough money to pay the barrister for the case that was never there in the first place, therefore no refunds will be available to those who were daft enough to trust him with their money.
Those that donated have still not seen through this latest con, and are convinced Tommy took a case to the high court and won a battle against the Mayor and have now achieved nothing really, other than lot of them donating to a false appeal leaving them in exactly the same position as they were two days ago and are still banned from entering Tower Hamlets.
Hopefully this summary of how they have been completely conned by a non existent High Court case will sink in with a few members, who seem to have more money than sense. No doubt their money will be on display tomorrow in the form of some new designer clobber and 'something for the evening'.
The following shows the wheels falling off Tommy's con as he is unable to explain when the application hearing is/was.
Numbers may well be down as well, and none of them like the hostility they face from Londoners, especially those that have been on the receiving end before, and there has been some major fall-outs across the north with accusations of paedophilia, threats of violence between each other, along with the occasional threat to kill.
None of the north west EDL have been able to organise a coach between them and those that are still set on going, are having to take the MegaBus which will arrive at Victoria Coach Station just before lunch. Unfortunately, they will not be allowed to get absolutely slaughtered on the MegaBus and that is, if they will carry them in the first place.
The threat of a Muslim takeover in the capital is obviously not important enough for them to splash out for the train but this could also be down to the fact that it is all they can afford after Tommy had fleeced them once more, for his non-existent court case.
Meanwhile to get a grasp on the type of tragic lunatics that are planning to turn up tomorrow, this guy is going to take back the streets of east London by kitting himself out with a very heavy and clumsy waste paper bin on his head.
His t-shirt states that he is a member of the now disbanded Taliban Hunting Club. They were disbanded after it was pointed out that they had failed to hunt even one member of the Taliban, and if they did come face to face with the Taliban, they would be heading to the mountains of Tora Bora faster than Tommy and Kevin fled Walthamstow.
One thing that London did not need was violent man beater, Deborah Kay Jemson, turning up in this horrendously tacky dress and making a fool of herself.
Fortunately, as Londoners in general celebrate good taste, Jemson will not be attending due to her benefits not turning up, which is a blessing for all who live here. She also booked her MegaBus ticket without checking if her benefits had been paid, leaving her penniless for the weekend with no offers as yet, of a loan from Tommy.
Another who will not be there is Yorkshire regional organiser and Hitler enthusiast, Nici Carr, who will not be there as she does not like Fiona Varley, who will be also on the minibus.
Little does she know, it was not only Varley that was passing us screenshots. The whole division is riddled with members who are quite happy to grass each other up for a packet of B&H.
Another reason was, she found out that the Yorkshire Division are mainly made up of morons due to the fact that she booked the mini bus for the Birmingham demo and several people said they were going and did not turn up and pay. Those that did, turned up got drunk and smashed up the mini bus, losing her the deposit.

Meanwhile in the north east, Newcastle and Sunderland Divisions have only managed to muster 70 between them and are still begging people to take empty seats. The following shows our old favourate Tony English Riley who is not going as fellow EDL members are threatening to burn his house down
We are not sure if London Division leader, Dave Bolton will be there, as he had to make an expensive trip to Hull this week, to plead guilty to public order offences after their recent drunken violent demo in the City, where EDL members violently attacked someone in front of families and children shopping on a Saturday afternoon.
Regardless of who is there, London is set to be another ritual humiliation for the far right group with thousands expected to turn out and send them packing. They will also be upset to belatedly learn, that Aldgate is in the City of London, and is desolate at the weekend, and no one will actually see them.
Viva London and all who live there!
Update: Since Tommy lost the hearing at the High Court and the judicial review was laughed out of court, to add insult to injury, the EDL claim that he has to pay the Met Police's legal costs, a princely sum of £8,000 which by our reckoning is 160 grammes of low grade cocaine.
To pour even more salt into the wounds, the EDL's website currently appears to be having further issues, meaning no one can get on it to donate, anyway.
