Hot line in forged notes (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stolen

Here is my best explanation:

'hot' is the definition.

(seen before)

'line in forged notes' is the subsidiary indication.

'line' becomes 'l'.

'in' indicates putting letters inside.

'forged' indicates an anagram.

'notes' with letters rearranged gives 'stoen'.

'l' put inside 'stoen' is 'stolen'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for stolen that I've seen before include "Taken without permission or payment", "Hot", "Taken without the owner's consent", "Purloined or embezzled", "Nicked", "Filched", "Taken dishonestly", "Robbed", "Lifted" and "Pilfered".)
