A South Bend man and woman were arrested after police say they robbed the man’s grandmother and a gas station at knifepoint.
Moreland and Frary went to Frary’s grandmother’s home on West Sixth Street in Mishawaka on June 10 and burst in armed with knives, according to court documents. Frary pushed his grandmother and Moreland stood over her, pointing the knife at her, while Frary rummaged through the home.
Frary and Moreland ran away with cash, a bottle of coins, a purse and some debit and credit cards, according to court documents. The woman called police and identified the suspects as her grandson and a red-haired woman.
Later that night, a clerk at the Quik Mart on South Main Street in Mishawaka said that a man and a woman came in armed with knives and demanded money from the cash register, according to court documents. He gave them cash, which they put into a blue bag and then ran.
Police found Moreland and Frary at their home on Emerson Road in South Bend on June 13 and took them into custody. During their first interviews, Frary and Moreland both denied having anything to do with either robbery. Moreland made contradicting statements about how well she knew Frary, according to court documents.
On a second attempt, Frary’s grandmother immediately identified Moreland as the woman who robbed her on June 10 in a photo lineup.
When police interviewed Moreland again, she admitted that she and Frary committed both robberies and gave police specific details about both incidents, according to court documents. She also told police she and Frary threw the stolen items into the river.
If convicted of both charges, Frary and Moreland each face up to 32 years in prison.
