Criminal Probe Over SJP-Related Break-In

6/17/2009 11:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Jessica ParkerThis one qualifies as shocking ... two police chiefs in the area where Sarah Jessica Parker's surrogate mother lives are under investigation -- for allegedly concocting a plan to break into the surrogate's home to get info for a tabloid.

Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter and Bridgeport Police Dept. Chief Chad DoJack allegedly were behind a plan to burglarize the surrogate's home in Martins Ferry, Ohio and then sell info to a tabloid reporter -- this according to WTRF TV.

We're told investigators have seized several computers. As for the operating theory -- investigators believe the culprits were trying to get photos from inside the house to show the living conditions.

It appears there really was a break-in a few weeks ago.

UPDATE: Police Chief Barry Carpenter told WTOV: "I'm 100% innocent in this and my department is as well."

Hope the baby doesn't share ANY of the genes of his/her parents. Otherwise it would look/act like a gay horse. lol

(gay = Matthew Broderick, horse = SJP)

She's so vain! She's only using a surrogate mom so her kids aren't born as nasty looking as her!

Martins Ferry is a little city of less than 7000 people and Bridgeport is a very small neighboring village. The Bridgeport police chief used to be an officer for the city of Martins Ferry and has a history of harassing teenagers. The investigation is being conducted by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, most likely due to the incestuous nature of most of the local small town departments. A special prosecutor from Harrison County has been appointed to oversee investigations because of conflict of interest between Belmont County prosecutors and the departments.

You can abuse the residents all day long, but you don't mess with the friend of famous people.

The surrogate lives in a house? I would have expected to see stable mentioned somewhere in the headline. How can can the kid share the horse face of mom if the surrogate is human?

Who cares??? They are just trying to keep themselves in the spotlight otherwise they wouldn't have let the public know she has a surrogate. Guess she doesn't want to ruin her figure by getting preggers...................

That is truly frightening. This woman should not have to be stressed out about things like this - especially right now. How nerve wracking. :(

Rumor has it that one of the chief's relatives owns the motel where the tabloid reporter was staying, and that's how this whole mess got started.

really?    

Let me first say I am sorry for the victims involved. But, come on here, Martins Ferry and Bridgeport are The Armpit of Ohio! Does something like this happening really surprise anyone? There is just a basic lack of civility down there on the river. Why wouldnt they have the surrogate somewhere nicer?

I live near this place. Why would she let her surr live in a hellhole like this? SJP should move her out to where she lives.
