Bryan PD Arrest Two Robbery Suspects After High Speed Chase

By  | 

BRAZOS COUNTY - Bryan police say they arrested two robbery suspects who led them on a chase into east Brazos County overnight Thursday.

26-year-old Katrell Dewyan Lindsey, of Brenham and 29-year-old Deandre Lavan Phillips of Bryan face multiple charges, including aggravated robbery and evading arrest.

Around 12:15 a.m. Thursday, police say they drove up to a man standing outside his residence in the 600 block of Commerce and asked for directions. When the man walked up to the car, they pulled out a gun and demanded money and personal items.

Nine minutes later, police say they tried to rob a 27-year-old woman at 920 Clearleaf. But when they pointed a gun at her, she said she did not have any money and they took off.

When the car pulled onto Beck street, officers responding to the first 911 call spotted the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. They say the driver, Lindsey, hit the gas and took off.

The two men led police on a chase, reaching speeds up to 95 miles per hour, down the following roads:
north on Palasota
west on 28th street
east on Hwy 21
north on the Hwy 6 feeder road
east on FM 974
south on FM 2038

Spike strips were deployed just before Business 21 near Kurten. The car hit the strips and came to a stop. Lindsey was immediately apprehended.

Phillips got out and ran into a nearby pasture. But with no houses in the area, there was nowhere to hide. So it didn’t take time to find him, especially with the help of a DPS helicopter and the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office.

The two suspects were booked on the following charges:

Katrell Dewyan Lindsey
Aggravated Robbery X 2 – 1st degree felony punishment 5-99 years
Evading in a Vehicle – State Jail Felony 180 days – 2 year in State Jail
Evading on Foot – Class A Misdemeanor – up to 1 year in County Jail

Deandre Lavan Phillips
Aggravated Robbery X 2 - 1st degree felony punishment 5 - 99 years
Tampering with Evidence – 3rd degree felony punishment 2 – 10 years
Evading on Foot – Class A Misdemeanor – up to 1 year in County Jail

Phillips is no stranger to police. He was convicted in 2007 of sexually assaulting a 16 year old and was sentenced to 7 years in prison. The Sheriff’s Office arrested him again in March for failure to register as a sex offender.
