AFAIK {Hej} has never used in a canon sentence, but {nIH} "steal" has been:

  You steal it. KLS

  leng chaw'wIj nIHlu'ta' 
  Someone stole my passport. TNK

  nurraj nIHlu'ta'mo' manoD 
  We will avenge your stolen pride PB (early draft?)

  le'yo'raj nIHlu'ta'mo' penoD jatlh qeylIS 
  And Kahless spoke to them ... about avenging their stolen pride PB

Cultural notes:

KGT 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.

Related words:

nIH 		steal (v)
qor 		scavenge (v)
quch 		kidnap (v)

HejwI'  	robber (n)
