Modern thieves cant.

I'm trying to write a story about a modern-day thief, and I'm trying to give him a certain voice, one that contains thieves cant/slang. But I searched it up, and it seems outdated. So I was wondering if there were any little words or phrases that you happened to know or hear from somewhere else, that relate to doing what thieves do, like stealing, escaping, some objects that might steal, et cetera. It can even be slang.

A few examples are "plastic" instead of "credit card" or "the green" instead of "money."

My story takes place in the modern day, present time, and in Tucson, Arizona.

Help is greatly appreciated! :)
