Police Chiefs Under Investigation in Sarah Jessica Parker Surrogate Mother Scheme

By Chloe Bunker on June 17, 2009

MARTINS FERRY, Ohio — Two police chiefs are currently under investigation after a recent break-in at the home of the surrogate mother for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

According to Ohio's WTRF-7 News, Police Chief Barry Carpenter of Martins Ferry and Bridgeport Chief Chad DoJack are under investigation by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. The pair allegedly masterminded a May break-in at the woman's home in an attempt to sell information to a tabloid.

Carpenter has since denied any wrongdoing and said he fully expects the investigation to clear his name.

The station said the surrogate, who is carrying twins for the couple, is no longer living at the Martins Ferry residence. However, it remains unclear whether she moved prior to the break-in or as a result of it.

Meanwhile, Parker's camp said there would be no comment from the expectant parents.

"Matthew and Sarah Jessica have complete faith in the legal system," her rep said in a statement. "But because it's a criminal investigation—we will not be making any more comment. What I can say is the entire family looks forward to the healthy delivery of their daughters later on this summer."

Parker has frequently complained about the abuse the surrogate has endured as a result of the high-profile pregnancy. In May, the "Sex and the City" star expressed outrage at the abuse, which has included threats and both her telephone and computer getting hacked into.

"I care deeply about her and I am incredibly outraged by the sort of extraordinary and unprecedented invasion of her privacy," Parker told Access Hollywood. "I think even given the unfortunate way we live now in this unending appetite for the more salacious information, it has still shocked me, and it has still really disappointed me."
