Suspects charged in residential break and enter

We’ve charged a man and a woman who are believed to be responsible for a violent home invasion that occurred last weekend in the northwest community of Briar Hill.

Around 4:30 a.m., Sunday, April 2, 2023, police were called to the 2000 block of Briar Crescent N.W., where a family reported finding a man and a woman in their basement. The homeowner confronted the intruders and was subsequently attacked with a weapon. The homeowner fought back and the suspects fled the residence with stolen property. The female suspect used stolen vehicle keys to access the family’s vehicle and flee, while it is believed that the male suspect fled on foot. The victim received minor injuries.

Yesterday, Thursday, April 6, 2023, a search warrant was executed in the northwest community of Balmoral, and two suspects were taken into custody.

As a result, Moses Leon CARDINAL, 30, is charged with one count of break and enter.

Patricia Alexandra BALL, 34, is charged with one count of break and enter, one count of theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of failure to comply with a court order, one count of failing to remain at the scene of an accident, one count of driving an uninsured motor vehicle and one count of operating a motor vehicle without a license.

CARDINAL and BALL are both scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, April 11, 2023.
