Ohio 'cleaning fairy' pleads guilty to criminal charge

WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) — A woman dubbed the “cleaning fairy” has pleaded guilty to attempted burglary in northeastern Ohio.

The Chronicle-Telegram of Elyria says Susan Warren got the nickname after breaking into a home west of Cleveland, cleaning it and leaving a bill for $75.

Warren pleaded guilty this week to attempted burglary and will be sentenced later.

The 53-year-old Warren told authorities that she was driving by the house and “wanted something to do.” She broke in, washed some coffee cups, took out the trash, vacuumed and dusted inside the house. Then she left a bill written on a napkin that included her phone number.

Warren said that she owns a cleaning business and sometimes enters homes, cleans them and leaves a bill.

She has another burglary case pending, but circumstances weren’t clear.
