Scout Controller inconsistency after portal move.
Portal: Von Baer Park Entrance

Story of portal history and current status in-game:
I was browsing intel and noticed I didn't have a scout controller on a portal that I know I have scanned before.
When I get to the portal, I see the familiar yellow circle signifying that I have scout controlled this portal in the past.
I click on the image to start portal scanning and get this message.
After a few seconds, the error goes away and shows that I am the current scout controller.
Scanning the portal again only increases my points but does not correct the issue. The error does not occur on other nearby portals or portals that I have not scout controlled. I believe this issue is unique to me and this particular portal.
History of Wayspot:
While playing Pokemon Go several years ago, I noticed that this pokestop was moved several miles away from the proper location to near **** Schwab and Walmart in southern Logan, UT. I took the opportunity to report and move it back to Von Baer park. My suggested move was better, but definitely not in the right spot.
Several years later (now), while playing Ingress, I took the opportunity to find and scout control this portal. I managed to get within range of the portal and scanned it. Since it was far from the correct location, I submitted a location change through the Wayfarer Community page [Link at the top of report].
My recommended location was wrong, but the wayspot was returned to the proper location. (Good work NianticGiffard)
Interesting bug. It isn't hurting gameplay.
