Never used in a sentence by Okrand, though he does associate stealing with 
the {Hur'Iq} in KGT (p.153):

   "the Hur'q, a race of humanoids from the Gamma Quadrant who developed
    a reputation as ruthless invaders who would attack other societies
    primarily for the purpose of robbery, stealing whatever they could
    and destroying the rest."

We also have the derived noun {nIHwI'} "thief".

In addition to {Hej} "rob" we also have {qor} "scavenge".
