Pronunciation: in-fillch-rayd

Sentence: For the third day in a row, Terry went to grab her lunch from the office fridge to find only some grape stems and a smushed Kashi bar in what was once a cornucupia of delicious food items. She had been foiled by this infilchraider one too many times. She spent the rest of the dayfighting off hunger pangs while rigging up a Web cam in the refrigerator to catch the sneaky and merciless thief. Unfortunately for her, she was fired for violating company policy about Web cams at work, and the HR person who wrote the policy continued to infilchraid people's lunches at will. He did miss Terry, though, or at least her lunch.

Etymology: Infiltrate: to enter or move into an area + filch: to make off with the belongings of others + raid: a sudden short attack.
