— Fans of a Myrtle Beach-based reality television show are showing their love days after the first episode aired by stealing memorabilia, police said.

The sign proclaiming Patrick’s Mobile Home Park as the home of the TLC show “Welcome to Myrtle Manor” was stolen early Wednesday, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.

Park owner Cecil Patrick reported the sign stolen about 8 a.m. Wednesday and told officers it was valued at $380, police said.

Patrick told officers that the sign hung under the Patrick’s Mobile Home Park sign along Highway 15 and read “Myrtle Manor,” according to the report. The sign hung by chains, which were cut.

The sign was there about 10 p.m. Tuesday and Patrick said he realized it was gone at 4 a.m. Wednesday and then called police at 8:12 a.m. to file the report. It was unclear who took the sign and no suspects were listed in the report.

The TV show, which premiered Sunday night on TLC, was shot at Patrick’s Mobile Home Park last summer, with the “Myrtle Manor” area set up at the back of the park.

About 1.3 million checked out the show Sunday night, according to Nielsen ratings.
