MILVILLE, N.J. – A school bus aide has been charged with stealing lunch money and bagged lunches from preschoolers in New Jersey.

Police in Millville say 33-year-old Rosa Rios was caught on a surveillance camera rummaging through students’ backpacks.

She’s accused of stealing money and food from the 3- to 5-year-olds she was supervising in January and February.

Authorities first reviewed the footage because the bus driver complained that someone had stolen $400 from her. Rios is also under investigation in that theft.

The Sheppard Bus Company says Rios no longer works for the firm. She had been employed there about seven years.

Rios was charged Friday with robbery and theft. She is being held on $70,000 bail at the Cumberland County Jail and couldn’t be reached for comment.
