: I have never heard the verb "gank" used to describe the act of
: borrowing or stealing.  I have several friends in Northeastern KY and
: Southern WV who use the word "cabbage" in that way.  "Who cabbaged my
: lighter?"

Verbs i've heard around the BYU campus for the same concept (low-level
stealing) are "kife" and "bogart". I'ven't heard "gank" yet, but i'll keep
my ears open.
