Yegg: burglar or safecracker

I used to have a large padlock. I have no idea where it's gone. Perhaps pinched?

What a strange word. Dictionary.com offered very little in terms of its etymology—just some conjecture. If OED fails me, I will be very disappointed ... and even more curious about this word's origins.
