‘Cleaning Fairy’ arrested on warrant after shoveling driveways without permission

Warren

ELYRIA — The cleaning fairy is at it again — this time she’s been shoveling driveways without permission, according to Elyria Police Lt. Chris Costantino.

Costantino said police were sent to a home on Branston Avenue today for a report of a “suspicious female” shoveling a driveway without the homeowner’s consent.

Police spoke with the woman, 53-year-old Susan Warren, and found that Warren had a warrant through Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office for attempted burglary.

Warren was arrested on the warrant, but she wasn’t charged with a crime for shoveling the driveways.

The Elyria woman was sentenced to one year of probation in November for breaking into a Westlake home, cleaning it and leaving a $75 bill for the homeowner on a napkin.

Warren told The Chronicle-Telegram that she went inside to clean because “she wanted something to do.”

She said she often went into homes and cleaned them, but she never had a problem before that.

Costantino said Warren was found with almost $1,000 in cash, so the snow shoveling must have been “pretty lucrative.”
