The so-called cleaning fairy who allegedly breaks into Ohio homes, tidies up and leaves a hefty bill has been captured by authorities.
The suspected cleaning fairy Susan Warren, 53, of Elyria, Ohio, was taken into custody Wednesday by the Westlake Police Department for allegedly breaking into the Bush family's Westlake home, cleaning it and leaving a bill back on May 22, according to Fox 8 Cleveland.
Authorities are looking to charge Warren with burglary.
The woman got up, came downstairs, noticed things moved around, and also found a note written on a napkin that said, 'I cleaned your house. Please send $75, name, and address,' Westlake Police Department Capt. Guy Turner told the television station, referring to homeowner Sherry Bush. Some of the coffee cups had been washed, and the vacuum had been taken out. A few other things, like cleaning supplies that were out of place. Then of course, the most startling thing, the note written in a very unbusinesslike fashion.
Sherry Bush said when she read the note, she assumed the cleaning company sent the woman to the wrong home and gave Warren a call.
I think our jaws just dropped to the ground, Bush said, according to NBC-2.com. I said, what happened, did you get the wrong house? She said, 'No, I do this all the time.' I said, What do you mean? She said, 'I just stop and clean your house.'
The Bush family home wasn't the only house allegedly paid a visit by the cleaning fairy.
Warren allegedly told cops she acts as the cleaning fairy all the time and could be fingered in similar incidents, WOIO reported.
Not only was Warren allegedly being a cleaning fairy, her alleged behavior was stalker-like, according to Olmsted Township resident Brad Hartig.
He said he used to hire Warren and she would attempt to clean his home after he fired her.
She said, 'I left you a note on your counter saying I'll be back two weeks later.' I told her, 'Remember, I told you we don't need you anymore, and you still tried to get in the house,' Hartig told Fox 8.
