Man Sentenced For Armed Robbery Of Jacksonville Restaurant

An Onslow County man is facing more than eight years in prison after he robbed a Jacksonville restaurant.

Osric Daise, a 23-year-old man from Hubert, was sentenced in federal court Wednesday. In June, Daise had pleaded guilty to the crime.

Daise and another man held up the Captain D's Seafood Restaurant in Jacksonville in October 2010. Daise threatened to shoot the manager and cook and then forced the two to leave the restaurant with him. When Daise got outside, Jacksonville police took him into custody. No one was hurt.

Following his prison time, Daise will be on five years probation. Reports indicate the second robber was never captured.


Previous Story from October 2010:

Police say they stopped a kidnapping attempt of a store employee Saturday night in Jacksonville.

Osrick Daise of Hubert is charged with armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a stolen firearm. Police say the 22-year-old man and a partner came into the Captain D's Restaurant on Marine Boulevard around 9:45 p.m.

Daise, according to police, tried to leave with one of the workers as a hostage at gunpoint. But police nabbed him at the rear door of the restaurant. The worker was not hurt.

Daise is in jail on a $700,000 bond while police are looking for the second gunman. He is described as a young, dark skinned black man, thin build, between 5' 7" and 6 feet tall. The robber has dreadlocks and possibly a thin mustache. He was wearing droopy pants and a dark colored hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information about this case contact Jacksonville police at 910-455-4000 or Crimestoppers at 910-938-3273.

    Eight years??? I'm left wondering what he actually received the 8 years for? Was that eight years for ARMED ROBBERY? Or was that some years for armed robbery, plus some years for kidnapping, plus some years for possession and use of a gun during the commission of a crime...all added up coming out to 8 years... How can we find out if the gun was purchased legally? Did he have any prior convictions? Was the gun stolen or did he purchase it legally? Just wondering.
