Food theft by students has prompted a Virginia school district to keep surveillance cameras in some cafeterias for another year. Students stole an estimated $1.2 million in food during the 2007-08 school year in Fairfax County, and officials say cameras helped divert some losses during the past school year. The district said it's also deterring food theft by allowing fewer students in line at once and reducing the number of easy-to-grab packaged foods.
