To purloin, snatch up, seize. Also, as a noun, a type of horse bit (plus a derivative verb, meaning to put one on), but that's not the interesting-to-me meaning. The bit dates to the early 16th century, origin unknown, and the swiping to the early 18th century, also origin unknown and apparently entirely unrelated. I forget where I snaffled this one from.
