ELYRIA -- Police confirm they were called to a home where the infamous Cuyahoga County "cleaning fairy" appears to now be the Lorain County "snow fairy."

Police went to Branston Avenue and found a woman shoveling a driveway, something not so unusual in this weather.

But police say she didn't own the home and the homeowner did not ask her to shovel the driveway.

Police did not arrest Sue Warren, 53, of Elyria, for shoveling snow in the driveway but did arrest her on outstanding warrants from the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office for attempted burglary.

Warren was arrested in April in Beachwood and charged with criminal trespassing and again in May in Westlake for breaking into people's homes and cleaning them, then leaving a bill for her services.

Warren was sentenced in November to one year of probation for the Westlake incident, with other conditions, including 20 hours of community service within six months.

On Jan. 8, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Peter J. Corrigan made a judgment entry in her case that she was not abiding by the conditions of her probation.

On Jan. 14, a warrant for her arrest was issued and sent to the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department..

According to the court docket, violating her probation could yield her 12 months in prison. Court records do not reflect which part of her probation she has violated.
