TURIN, Italy, May 20 (UPI) -- Italian police who raided a Scientology chapter said they found what appeared to be extensive files on law-enforcement officials and former members.

The documents were in a locked room of the Scientology chapter in Turin and were said to contain information on the subjects' health, politics and sexual habits, the ANSA news agency said Thursday.

Citing media reports in Turin, ANSA said police spent about 9 hours searching the building as part of an investigation into alleged violations of Italian law on the handling of personal information.

No arrests were reported.
