LEE COUNTY- Oscar Dan Davis, 24, of Fort Myers was sentenced to nine years in prison on Thursday.
Davis was arrested by Cape Coral Police in 2008 for a series of armed robberies he committed throughout the city. Davis would confront his victims in the early morning hours, threaten them with a handgun and steal their money and/or property.
In one such robbery, Davis stole the victim’s wallet and used his credit card to pay his cell phone bill. This is how detectives were able to identify him as a suspect and eventually arrest him on armed robbery charges. Davis would later be back out on the streets and resume his criminal activity.
This time, he started committing burglaries. Davis was again identified as a suspect in a string of residential burglaries occurring from Feb.-March of 2010.
Davis was arrested by Cape Coral Police in March of 2010 on charges of burglary and dealing in stolen property stemming from a home break-in on Feb. 14, 2010. Davis broke into the home and stole jewelry and later sold it to a pawn shop in Fort Myers.
Davis was sentenced to nine years in the Florida Department of Corrections with a Career Criminal designation of Habitual Felony Offender.
When the judge sentenced him to nine years, Davis thanked him for his leniency.
