Does “snatch something over” or “snatch something away” sound native?

I’ve learnt that you can say things like: >She snatched the biscuit out of his hand. (snatch ... out of) >She snatched a biscuit from the plate. (snatch ... from) But how does it sound if I say something like: >She walked up and snatched that biscuit over/away. Is it correct grammar? Does it make sense to native speakers?
