Prolific shoplifter ordered to adhere to two-year Criminal Behaviour Order

A prolific shoplifter from Crewe has been banned from entering a number of convenience stores across the town as part of efforts to tackle his offending.

Ian McIntyre was handed the two-year order at Chester Magistrates' Court on Thursday 2 May, following multiple incidents of shoplifting across Crewe and the surrounding areas.

As a result, the 45-year-old, of no fixed address but of Crewe, has been banned from entering the Grand Junction Retail Park area of Crewe and the area of Crewe town centre. He is also banned from entering the following stores:

  1. Bradfield Road service station, Crewe
  2. B&Q store on Weston Road, Crewe
  3. Cooperative store on Parkers Road, Crewe
  4. Cooperative store on Readesdale Avenue, Crewe
  5. Cooperative store on Remer Street, Crewe
  6. McColl's on Badger Avenue, Crewe
  7. The Post Office, on West Street, Crewe
  8. Queens Park service station on Victoria Avenue, Crewe

  14. Euro Garages on Jack Mills Way, Shavington

As part of order, he has also been banned from having open vessels of alcohol in a public place.

If he fails to comply with the CBO, McIntyre will be committing a criminal offence which may result in a recall to prison or fine.

Police Constable, Justin Taylor, of Crewe Local Policing Unit, said:

"Ian McIntyre has been a persistent problem for local businesses across Crewe, so I am very thankful that the courts have recognised the hard work of our Beat Team, leading to him being issued with this Criminal Behaviour Order.

"I hope the granting of this CBO can provide some reassurance to local retailers and residents that we are doing all we can to deter anti-social behaviour and criminality like this from occurring in our town.

“McIntyre is under the order until 2 May 2026 and if he fails to comply, he could face imprisonment.”

If anyone does encounter McIntyre breaching the restrictions of his orders, then please contact Cheshire Police via: 


or call 101, to report it.
