I was wondering if anyone else had seen this or if anyone knows why. Certain characters while in a sector will start picking up different items from the sector and putting it in their inventory. I move it out and after some time passes they do it again. Thanks for any feedback.

That will be mercs who have the tendency to steal items which reflects their character background. It can be quite annoying and I can't quite understand what repercussions would result in this behaviour, unless your merc stole from Kingpin or something. For me it's like having a kid in the supermarket who keeps picking up items that he shouldn't in the candy aisle, you slap 'em on the hand and say don't do it again, but you'll be doing the same the next week.

This is a feature whith potentially higher impact on game than probably intended.
If your squad decides to retreat from battle and one merc has increased his encumbrance > 100% with stolen stuff,
they will be slower than the patrol(s) which chase them.
Also iirc spies with civil disguise will steal military equipment,
and with military disguise take items above_allowed_progress_lvl_for_soldiers,
both with lethal potential if undiscovered by player before battle.

Mercs cant steal stuff if all their inventoty slots are occupied,
e.g. spread money over their inventory slots because it weighs nearly zero
and can be drawn from or put into the bank whenever you like.

Of course thats an exploit, but its imo justified by the fact that these guys cant ever change their behaviour,
even if torture or death is the consequence.

Note that mercs obviously still attempt to steal stuff althouh their pockets are full,
with possible effect on opinion.
