(Newser) – Talk about invasive marketing. A woman in Ohio allegedly broke into a home, tidied up a bit, then left a bill for $75 written on a napkin with her phone number, reports the Chronicle-Telegram of Elyria, Ohio. Police say Susan Warren took out the trash, vacuumed, dusted, and washed a few mugs, while the homeowner's 19-year-old daughter slept upstairs.

Warren, who pleaded guilty to attempted-burglary charges this week, says it's no big deal—she owns a cleaning company and has done this kind of thing before. (Which may explain a previous conviction for criminal trespassing.) She'll be sentenced next month. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
