Police have identified a real life cleaning fairy in Ohio, but is now facing a prison sentence.
A woman broke into a Westlake home, did some light cleaning, then left a bill.
The family thought a cleaning service sent someone to the wrong house, but the “cleaning fairy” told them it was no mistake, and they better pay up.
“There were some coffee mugs that my husband had out,” homeowner Sherry Bush said. “She had washed them all.”
Last week, while she was away and her daughter was sleeping upstairs, someone broke in the house, took out trash, vacuumed the carpet and cleaned up the playroom, Bush said.
“She wrote a note on a napkin and left it on the table, saying, ‘$75 I was here to clean,’ and left her name and number,” Bush said.
When the Bushes read it, they thought Sue Warren just cleaned the wrong house, so they gave her a call.
“I think our jaws just dropped to the ground,” Bush said. “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.’”
It isn’t clear if Sue Warren does this all the time, but she did do it last month in Beachwood, and was charged with criminal trespassing.
A friend living at Warren’s Elyria home said Sue is always working and owns her own business.

“That’s what she does for a living. She cleans,” Bush said.
“Now that we’ve seen the job that she did, it was like whoa, $75? $15 maybe,” Bush said laughing.
Warren was picked up by Elyria police after a traffic stop last night on the burglary warrant.
Capt. Guy Turner said the case will likely be transferred to the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, at which time Warren will be sent to the county jail.
Despite the strange nature of these crimes, nothing was stolen from the homes.
