PutComponent always returns Nothing for drawing cells

I'm using the PutComponent method to place multiple instances of a drawing cell in my design. The drawing cell contains route obstructs, and will be added to our plane layers after the design has been routed up. I'd like to know the coordinates for each instance placed, as well as whether or not the placement was successful or not. Currently, the return value that I get from PutComponent is nothing so it's as if it's always failing, but looking at the design, it clearly has many places where placement was successful and a few places where it was not.

 

Does anyone have any explanation, or perhaps a better way to accomplish my goal?
