    How to use "Filch" in context?

    Filch is the act of stealing something belonging to another person, whether or not the individual has been consciously observed to have their property trespassed upon. The word, from the French word filcher, is derived from the Latin word pilus, meaning a bramble or hedgehog, in reference to the typical theft method of pick-pocketing.

    The most common victim of filching is undoubtedly the individual who has their pocket picked. However, the act of filching can also occur against anyone whose property is tampered with in a way that makes it vulnerable to theft.
