A SOUTHAMPTON man had only been out of prison for ten days when he returned to his old habits of burgling.

Michael Cahill, 35, had been serving a six-year term which included an offence of aggravated burglary when he was released. But within days he had struck at student accommodation in Southampton where he mainly stole laptop computers.

Cahill, of Nursery Road, pleaded guilty at the city crown court to three charges of burglary and was further remanded in custody pending sentence on June 2.
