No clean getaway: Woman breaks into Ohio home, cleans, leaves, gets arrested

(CBS/AP) ELYRIA, Ohio - Police in suburban Cleveland say a woman who owns a cleaning service broke into a house and washed the dishes, took out the trash, and vacuumed, before leaving a handwritten bill with her name on it.

Sounds like a case of OCD: obsessive cleaning disorder.

Police in Westlake say Sue Warren of Elyria broke into a home last week and began tidying up, but she didn't take anything. They say she then wrote out a bill for $75 on a napkin and included her name and address.

One officer says Warren told him she does it all the time. Only now, she's in jail on a burglary charge.

The 'cleaning lady' pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cuyahoga County Court, and was being held on $5000 bond, according to CBS affiliate WOIO.

A call to Warren's cleaning business was not answered Thursday.
