A 38-year-old man appeared in court this morning charged with the robbery that was committed at RHS Jewellers, Prospect Hill, Douglas, just over a week ago.
Michael Daniel Bergquist, previously of Castlemona Avenue, Douglas, did not enter a plea on the robbery charge, nor on a charge of taking a vehicle without consent, which it is alleged were both committed on May 9.
He did enter guilty pleas to a charge of failing to comply with the requirements of a provisional driving licence and a charge of having no insurance on May 9.
He was granted legal aid and remanded in prison.
He will appear in court again on Tuesday.
