  • Steal my prefix and I'll belong.
  • Steal my infix and I'll be heavy.
  • Steal my suffix and I'll be strong.
  • Steal my whole and I'll be gone.

Leave me be, for I am a community.

Could this 'community' be a:

TOWN?

Steal my prefix and I'll belong.

If we remove the first letter (T) we get OWN - a word with connotations of something belonging.

Steal my infix and I'll be heavy.

Remove the middle W and we get TON - a heavy weight.

Steal my suffix and I'll be strong.

Remove the last letter (N) and we get TOW - an action which can be done by something strong (like a tugboat or a truck).

Steal my whole and I'll be gone.

Remove all the letters and you have nothing left!
