foster care in the states

So I have a vague idea of how the foster care system works, but I still have a question.

Let's say a foster family takes in someone, they all settle down and things are going nicely. For some reason or another, the family decides to move to another state. Some time later, something happens and the foster kid is taken out of the home. Would he be sent back to the original state he was from, or would the social work system in the state he now lives in take over? More specifically... if he was convicted of petty theft or something, would he be sent to a juvenile facility in the state he was originally from or the one where the crime occurred? And if it's the second, after he's let out, would he stay in that state or be sent back?
