    Default pickpocket

    As I was shopping in the market, my cell phone was put in my handbag which was unzipped and the phone was stolen.

    I wanted to simplified the above sentence and thought about the word 'pickpocket'. But I couldn't find the verb for expressing the act of the pickpocket.

    I would like to make a sentence with the structure like :

    My cell phone was ______.

    Any suggestion from you.

    Thanks / ju
