'Cleaning fairy' arrested after shoveling snow without permission

Last year, the Ohio woman was arrested for breaking into a home and cleaning it without permission. She left a note charging the owner $75.

CLEVELAND — The Ohio woman dubbed "the cleaning fairy" by local media because she broke into a home and cleaned it without permission was arrested on Tuesday after police found her shoveling snow from a driveway without the owner's consent, police said.

Police in Elyria, a city 30 miles southwest of Cleveland, arrested Susan Warren, 53, on an outstanding warrant.

She could face jail time for a probation violation but no charges have been brought for the unsolicited snow shoveling, an Elyria Police Department spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday.

Last November, Warren pleaded guilty to attempted burglary and trespassing in connection with the house-cleaning incident, which occurred in May when she entered a suburban Cleveland home, did some light cleaning and left a note charging the owner $75.

Sherry Bush, the owner of the home, told WKYC-TV in Cleveland last year that she called Warren to question whether she had cleaned the wrong home by mistake. Bush said Warren told her there was no mistake, that she "does this all the time" and thought she was doing Bush a favor.

Warren was arrested and given one year of probation. She violated the terms of her probation earlier this month, triggering the warrant for her arrest, according to Cuyahoga County Court records. The records did not specify what Warren did to violate the probation.
