MAN WILL SERVE UP TO 25 YEARS IN STATE PRISON FOR CRIME SPREE THAT INCLUDED STEALING AMBULANCE

Cody Lynn-Phipps

A 31-year-old man was sentenced to 10 ½ years to 25 years in a state prison for five criminal matters that included stealing an ambulance from Lower Bucks Hospital, biting and spitting on Bristol Township police officers during a 2021 arrest, assaulting a corrections officer and thefts committed at two Falls Township businesses.

Cody Dylan Lynn-Phipps, with no known address, pleaded guilty in November to several counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, escape, burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, and public drunkenness for the crime spree that began September 2021 and March 2022.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2023, he appeared before Common Pleas Judge Gary B. Gilman, who sentenced him to a total of 10 ½ to 25 years in prison followed by 19 years of probation. Additionally, Gilman ordered Lynn-Phipps to undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, a mental health evaluation, anger management courses and have no contact with the victims. He was also ordered to pay restitution for damage caused during his crimes.

The ambulance theft happened on March 1, 2021, after Bristol Township Police took Lynn-Phipps into custody on warrants from Bucks County Probation. While waiting for the sheriffs to arrive, Lynn-Phipps became unresponsive and convulsive, so police used Narcan to treat him and called for Penndel-Middletown Emergency Squad who took him to Lower Bucks Hospital for additional evaluation.
