run one’s pockets
 v. phr.— «The man asked Cooper for a cigarette, and when Cooper said no, the man told him to “run your pockets,” which is street lingo for “give me your money.” Cooper grabbed the gun, pushed the man to the ground and ran.» —“Police and local briefs: Would-be robber shoots man in leg” News-Sentinel (Fort Wayne, Indiana) June 27, 2008.
