MARTINS FERRY, Ohio (AP) - A law enforcement official says two Ohio police chiefs are being investigated on allegations that they burglarized the home of a woman serving as a surrogate mother for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

The official said Thursday that the chiefs are accused of trying to sell photos and other information to a tabloid. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no charges have been filed.

The official says the suspected burglary took place in mid-May in Martins Ferry in eastern Ohio. The allegations against Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter and Bridgeport Police Chief Chad DoJack surfaced about a week later.

Messages were left for them and Broderick's publicist.
