The 'Cleaning Fairy,' In All Her Asinine Glory, Resurfaces

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 11:20 AM

Susan Warren, 53, the Elyria woman who garnered some level of notoriety as the woman who breaks into homes, tidies them up and leaves a bill for the work, is back. Unfortunately.

The return of the heralded "Cleaning Fairy," now a quasi-celebrity whose character was coined by Sun News' Joe Noga, is enough to rouse the ecstasy of any community newsroom. This time, according to 19 Action News, Warren was caught shoveling driveways without the property owners' permission. No charges were brought, but police discovered a warrant out for her arrest after she violated probation. ...Probation she had earned following a bout of, yes, getting caught cleaning people's homes.
