A clean break-in

Chicago – A 26-year-old woman came home on Christmas night to find a man she had never seen before folding her laundry and cleaning her apartment in Chicago’s Irving Park neighborhood, police said.

A judge set bail at $125,000 Wednesday for Paul Edge. Edge, 58, a registered sex offender, was charged with violation of sex offender registration, a felony, and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass, authorities said.

The woman told the Chicago Tribune she had been on Christmas holiday but returned home with her fiance to her home and found Edge sitting cross-legged in her living room folding her laundry and cleaning her apartment, police said.

“It was pretty scary,” she said.

The woman called police and officers got to the scene and interviewed Edge, who told them someone let him inside and asked him to clean the home, police said.

Okay. I know this is serious but still, wouldn't it be nice to have someone break into your house and clean it and fold your laundry? Mebbe it's just me...
