(AP) Atlanta police have arrested two women they say were involved in a brazen plot to collect personal information from officers.


Police say the women went to police precincts pretending to work for an insurance company. They told employees the city was changing its insurance options and got some officers to fill out applications.


Police say the scheme was uncovered when a lieutenant became suspicious because he said the presentation didn't feel like a typical visit from an insurance company.


Sgt. Paul Cooper says it's not entirely clear what the women planned to do with the information.


Thirty-year-old Cintia Ximena Pedone-Allou and 23-year-old Dawnetta Patrice Underwood were in jail Monday on identity theft and racketeering charges. Police did not know whether they had attorneys.
