Charity's offices apparently bugged
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Oklahoma City police are trying to determine if internal feuding at a Christian non-profit organization involved illegal wiretapping.

Gary Waits, a private detective hired by Feed The Children, said he found the remains of electronic eavesdropping devices in three offices when he swept the headquarters Wednesday, The Oklahoman reports.

Feed The Children, known for late-night commercials featuring children in poor countries, recently settled a lawsuit brought by ousted board members. Under the agreement, Larry Jones, who founded the organization, will remain as a spokesman while giving up any executive role.

The group said it would not comment on allegations of wiretapping because of the police investigation.
