I hate it when I go to talk to someone, but I click just a few pixels too far to the side and end up accidentally stealing a plate or a wooden bowl. The next thing I know, I have a bounty on my head and a guard breathing down my throat. Now I have to reload my last save. It would be great if there were a mod or another way to not accidentally steal certain items like skulls, bowls, and plates.

  • (if on pc) I know you can clear your bounty etc with the console, I just don't know how to do it right off. – Unionhawk Nov 2 '13 at 6:01
  • I am about tempted to do that. I am tired of every guard saying, "Wait, I know you" and trying to confiscate my stolen goods because I accidentally five-fingered a plate while trying to talk to someone who was sitting at a table. I guess the alternative would be to drop all stole stuff, pay the bounty, and then pick it all back up again. – oscilatingcretin Nov 2 '13 at 15:56
  • I hate it when I accidently steal stuff too. Especially when they remove all my stolen goods. I lost like 3 of my best weapons before because of accidently stealing stuff and getting caught doing it (I also lose around 600-1400 gold worth of gems) – soulreaper Nov 4 '13 at 19:03

Yes there is, blocksteal redux will prevent you from stealing. 3,670 endorsements, too, so it should be pretty good.

To remove your bounty via console use the paycrimegold command:

player.paycrimegold <X> <Y> <FactionID>

Sometimes, does not pay off your bounty fully.
X = 1 Remove stolen items. 0 Don't remove stolen items.
Y = 1 Go to jail. 0 Don't go to jail.

  • I installed this using the mod manager and it doesn't work. As soon as I stole something, I had a guard all up in my business in no time. I checked to make sure the mod was enabled, too. I have Skyrim 1.9.32 and SKSE 1.6.16 build 44. – oscilatingcretin Nov 3 '13 at 9:56

    Did you activate it via the spell? – Twilight Sparkle Nov 3 '13 at 10:11
  • Win! I activated it through the mod config menu and now I am not able to pick up any owned items. I'd have though it would have been enabled by default. – oscilatingcretin Nov 3 '13 at 10:22
  • Haha yeah, it was designed to give you flexibility in case if you wanted to steal in the future :) – Twilight Sparkle Nov 3 '13 at 10:25

    Also, for the SSE edition there is the similar mod: nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/18732 – Reginald Blue Aug 23 '20 at 0:16
