Negative Mitzvah 244: It is forbidden to steal
Leviticus 19:11 "Do not steal"

We are forbidden to steal money or goods.

Positive Mitzvah 239: Penalties for Robbery
Exodus 21:37-22 "If a man shall steal..."

This Positive Mitzvah details the various penalties inflicted upon the thief. A thief must restore the stolen article and also pay a fine for breaking the law.

Sometimes it happens that you set out to do something with the best of intentions -- and you end up with what appears the opposite. Know with absolute certainty -- because this is a tradition of our sages -- that if your true intent is good, then only good can come out of it. Perhaps not the good you intended -- or care for -- but good nevertheless.
