It’s hard to imagine how the 911 calls went down, though one expects the exchanges on Wednesday might have gone something like this:
Operator: 911, what is your emergency?
Caller: There is a strange woman shoveling the snow off my driveway.
Operator: [Pause] And how is that a problem?
The problem is that the anonymous good Samaritan likely had a familiar face to some residents of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. She is 53-year-old Susan Warren, aka “The Cleaning Fairy.” FOX affiliate WOIO explains that Warren’s past offenses included “breaking and tidying”:
In November of 2012, [she] was sentenced to one year of probation for breaking into a Westlake home, cleaning it and leaving a $75 bill for the homeowner on a napkin.
[At the time of her arrest] she said that it wasn’t uncommon for her to go into homes and clean them and that she never had a problem before that.

One might argue that Warren’s peculiar fascination with showing kindness to strangers proves the adage that no good deed goes unpunished, but obviously a problem lurks somewhere in this woman’s wiring.
WOIO notes that Warren’s arrest was for an outstanding warrant for probation violation and that no charges were brought for shoveling the snow.
