A former accountant for a Southern California school district accused of stealing thousands of dollars in student lunch money was seen on video surveillance stuffing cash into her bra.

A search warrant affidavit said Rialto Unified accountant Judith Oakes was seen hiding money in her bra on at least two occasions, according to the San Bernardino County Sun.

The 48-year-old former accountant for the district's nutrition services department was arrested Aug. 8 on suspicion of grand theft, embezzlement and burglary. She resigned a day later.

Rialto schools funneled thousands of dollars in student lunch money to Oakes daily for deposit into the district's bank account.

The affidavit say bank deposit slips show a discrepancy of $2,000 dating back to June.
