Bergquist returned to prison
An Onchan man who tried to break into on business, before burgling another just weeks later, has been returned to prison to serve the rest of a jail term for armed robbery.
Forty-five-year-old Michael Daniel Bergquist, of Belgravia Road, appeared before magistrates at Douglas Courthouse via a live link from the jail in Jurby.
He'd pleaded guilty to attempted burglary and burglary, and prosecutor Rebecca Cubbon withdrew a second burglary charge.
Bergquist used a fire extinguisher to try to smash his way into the iQ Apple Premium Reseller shop, on Prospect Hill in Douglas, in the early hours of 6 December but left empty-handed.
Between 23 and 27 December he broke into the AutoMann car dealership, on Elm Tree Road in Onchan stealing four iPads, an iPhone and a laptop.
The hearing was told Bergquist had been recalled to prison to serve the rest of a sentence imposed for armed robbery.
In 2015 he used a hammer to threaten staff at RHS Jewellers in Douglas before making off with £25,000 worth of jewellery - he's due to remain in jail until December 2023.
Bergquist was remanded in custody and is next due to appear in court on 13 May.
