Lip from criminals (3)


I believe the answer is:


'lip' is the definition.

'from criminals' is the wordplay.
'from' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'RIM' can be found hidden inside 'criminals'.

(Other definitions for rim that I've seen before include "Edge or margin" , "An edge, canyon or cup" , "Edge - lip" , "Upper or outer edge" , "Flange" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
