Brenham man receives 30 year sentence for pair of Bryan robberies

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX)- Katrell Lindsey, 29, pled guilty and received 30 years in prison for his
role in two aggravated robberies that occurred on June 26, 2014.

Lindsey and his co-defendant, Deandrea Phillips, first robbed a man around 12:16 a.m. They put a gun to his head and demanded his money.

They also took his wallet, shoes, and cell phones.

Eight minutes later Bryan Police received a call from another robbery victim about one mile away from the first. The second victim was also threatened with a firearm, but was able to convince the pair that she
didn’t have her purse, so they fled.

Both victims described two black males in a maroon car as the suspects.

Bryan police found the suspect vehicle and pursued it as it tried to run from them. A team of law enforcement composed of Bryan PD officers, Brazos County Sheriff’s deputies, and state troopers from DPS eventually stopped the fleeing felons. They then caught the two as they
ran from the vehicle to avoid being caught.

Property from the first robbery was located along their flight route and inside of the car. By all accounts Lindsey was the getaway.

Lindsey will have to serve at least half of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

Assistant District Attorneys John Brick and Philip McLemore prosecuted the case on behalf of the State of Texas.

“Robbery takes more than just property, it also steals a citizen’s sense of safety and security. If you threaten another’s life over property, you deserve a lengthy prison sentence," said John Brick, Assistant District Attorney driver during the robberies.
