Steal funds (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pocket

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'steal' is the first definition.

(pocketing is a kind of stealing)

'funds' is the second definition.

(pocket is a kind of funds)

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for pocket that I've seen before include "Take; isolated patch", "One of six pouches on snooker table", "Small bag; steal", "Pot a snooker ball into the .....", "pot", "Appropriate", "Electronic maths aid", "Small isolated group", "A ball-catching pouch on a snooker table" and "Snooker table opening".)
