The criminal that did her “victim” a favor



Warren’s cleaning service has landed her in jail many times.

Susan Warren, the owner of a cleaning business, was living in Ohio in May 2012. According to her, she was “bored and wanted something to do”.

So, Warren came to the conclusion that she would clean someone’s house. However, this would not prove to be a normal run-of-the-mill cleaning.

While driving down the street, Warren randomly selected a home. She managed to break into the home, where she then proceeded to wash their dishes, vacuum their rooms, take out their trash and just generally clean their rooms.

After this unusual cleaning, Warren left a note on a napkin with a concise message: “$75 I was here to clean”. She then left her phone number and even her name along with the note.

During the entire time that Warren had been cleaning, one of the residents of the home (an 18-year-old girl) had been upstairs sleeping the entire time. Upon waking up and finding the note, she called her mother, Sherry Bush. The girl asked Bush about the cleaning service she’d hired. To this, the surprised Bush said she hadn’t contacted any cleaning service.

Bush called Warren to let her know that she’d cleaned the wrong house. However, Warren corrected Bush, saying she just chose a home at random and cleaned it–and that it wasn’t her first time doing this, either.

Just a month earlier, Warren had been charged with criminal trespassing, pleading guilty to attempted burglary and trespassing (although she hadn’t stolen or planned to steal anything). After this, she was sentenced to one year on probation.

Less than a year later, in February 2013, Warren was again arrested after being caught shoveling the snow of someone else’s driveway. Warren’s atypical crimes make her an interesting blend of a service provider and a criminal.
