The meaning of "Pickpocketing" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does pickpocketing mean?
A: Pick-pocketing is the term when a person would reach into a person's pockets (commonly tourists or in a tourist city) to steal anything of value when the person is distracted or unaware of what's going on. They do it stealthily so it's hard to notice you have had your things stolen until later on which is why tourists are often told to be aware of pick-pocketers when they enter a foreign country.
