    It's because you're stealing.

    If your neighbor has a dog that he beats and neglects and you steal it you've still committed a crime. Yes, you did it for the right reason, and your neighbor was evil and wrong for what he did, but you still took something of his that doesn't belong to you.

    Same deal with monsters. Anytime you use the stealing skill to take something that is not yours, you will get flagged.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. Stealing an earth eles citrine is still stealing.

    From my experience, any successful use of the stealing skill vs. a mobile results in the criminal timer.

    Mostly, yes, but NOT if you manage to steal one of the "special items".
