Probe of P&G; Leak Much Bigger: A police probe into news leaks about the Procter & Gamble Co. is much larger than previously believed, the company that publishes the Wall Street Journal said. P&G; had asked police to investigate for possible violations of the state’s law against revealing trade secrets after a series of leaked stories to publications, including the Journal. Dow Jones & Co.'s news service said Cincinnati Bell, at the request of police, searched 655,297 home and business telephone lines and nearly 40 million calls made in a 10-week time period.
