[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] [CD] Stans stealing the bowls from the Pet Feeder

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Put a "Petmate Programatic Pet Feeder" in a park and wait for a "Stan" to show up. I discovered the culprit purely by chance after wondering for quite awhile where those bowls were going. So, how exactly you can reproduce this is a bit of a mystery to me. I was watching because my bowls kept disappearing. It was the first thing I checked when my Sim got to the park. Pure chance that I saw it being stolen by a "Stan."
What happens when the bug occurs? The bowl disappears.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the bowl not be stolen by a "Stan" at a public park.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I have been using the "Petmate Programatic Pet Feeder" in parks because they didn't seem to disappear like the regular bowls. Suddenly the bowls from the feeders were disappearing. Then I caught a "Stan" in the act of stealing them. I know they steal things from my Celebrity Sim's yard, but the park bowls?

 

Yes. I had an a Sim with the "Observant" trait introduce themselves to the stealing "Stan" to discover whether he was a kleptomaniac. He was not.

 

Why are "Stans" stealing from parks or any public lot. Shouldn't they restrict their larceny to their target's home?

I wasn't fast enough to get him in the act, but here's a "Stan" right after he stole the bowl. This at the Lounge in Brindleton Bay.

My sim has the fame quirk "a stan" and I have found out that the stan has been stealing the bowls (and a cat toilette)I used cheats to remove the quirk and hope that that will stop it
