Teen drive-by armed robbery suspects facing multiple charges

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Two men are facing three armed robbery charges each after what San Antonio police are investigating as a drive-by heist in a residential neighborhood.

Donnell Phillips, 18, is accused of being part of a four-person crew who robbed victims of their phones and jewelry before making off with their pickup truck on the night of August 5, 2023.

Investigators say video surveillance showed the suspects pulling up in a red Chrysler 300. Police think that car was also seen during a shooting in Guadalupe County.

According to an affidavit, Phillips was arrested and booked in the Bexar County Jail on Sunday.  

KSAT 12 reports 18-year-old Cane Allen is an accomplice and is also under arrest and jailed.

The identity of the other suspects are not known.

Jail records show both Phillips and Allen were out on bond from previous arrests:  Allen for evading arrest, Phillips for assault, bodily injury, theft, and retaliation.

An investigation by the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office is still underway.
