There's a box with your stolen gear in it somewhere in the jail. Obviously this will be a different place for each jail but there's a box somewhere.

I enjoy stealing. 
It's just as simple as that.
Well, it's just a simple fact. 
When I want something,
I don't want to pay for it. 

I walk right through the door.

Hey all right! If I get by, it's mine.

There are actually 2 boxes that you need to search when you escape from prison:


Prisoner Belongings




Belongings is all of the gear you had on you minus anything that you've stolen. All of your stolen merchandise is kept in the Evidence chest.


Since you only get the one lockpick, usually you'll have to also pickpocket the chest keys off a guard. The easiest thing to do (after you've got the achievement) is to just do your time and then go back into the prison and break into the Evidence chest as the rest of your belongings are automatically returned after you've completed your sentence.


Does the evidence chest in the jails contain your stolen merchandise after you've paid a fine rather than accepting incarceration?  I know that when you pay your fine for a crime, the guards will still search you for stolen goods.

Yes it does. : )

Thanks guys.
