JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — A detective for the Jonesboro Police Department says officers are investigating a woman's complaint that gifts she bought for foster children in Craighead County were all returned to the stores where she bought them by employees of the state Division of Children and Family Services.

Diaz Sawyer told Jonesboro television station KAIT that the gifts she bought for three foster children were all returned for their purchase price without being delivered to the children. She said the items were on wish-lists made out by the children, including clothing, a comforter, a camera and a remote-controlled helicopter.

Detective Mike Branscum said the big question is what the motive was for returning the gifts to the stores. He said he wants to hear from others who bought such gifts for foster kids.
