    stolen out

    Hi,

    is it common to use "stolen out" instead of "stolen".For example, equipment have been stolen out of her lab in the last two months. Can't we just say, equipment have been stolen of her lab in the last two months.

    Then you should say... has been stolen from her lab for the last two months.
