Glyndon Merry Maids Cleaner Admits To Stealing From Homes

Posted: Updated:
Yet another reason to be aware of who is coming into your home. A Glyndon, Minnesota, woman working for Merry Maids house cleaning service admitted she used her job to steal prescription drugs.

Mckenzie Moe says she stole from approximately 20 homes in Fargo. She is facing felony theft charges and is no longer employed at Merry Maids.

Court documents show she has a past of stealing. In May 2014, a North Fargo homeowner said 12 Ritalin pills went missing after a Merry Maids employee cleaned his home. The manager at Merry Maids told the homeowner to call police, saying there were already ongoing investigations regarding Moe stealing pills.

As investigators interviewed Moe, she admitted to using prescription medications, saying her occasional use developed into an addiction. Moe said she would take a small amount of pills from homes in hopes that homeowners wouldn't notice.  As her addiction grew worse, she became more reckless with how many pills she would typically take from each home.

Moe made it clear that none of the other Merry Maid employees were helping her steal from homes and she didn't think anyone else knew she was taking pills.  She also said after being fired from Merry Maids in May, she joined a peer assistance program with Woman's Impact to help combat her addiction.
