OH woman arrested after shoveling snow from driveways without permission

Cleaning fairy

The “Cleaning Fairy” strikes again.

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. News, Weather
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.

    So the title is misleading……there were no arrests/charges for shoveling snow, only for an existing probation violation. Almost as bad as MRConservative…….
