A WOMAN has been banned from entering a range of supermarkets across the region after being issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

Terri Ann Dingle, from St Helens, is banned from going to any Aldi, Co-Op, Wilko (Wilkinsons) or Tesco stores throughout Merseyside, after being handed a five-year CBO at Liverpool Magistrates' Court.

Dingle, 34, of no fixed address, but from St Helens, was issued with the order yesterday (Thursday, August 6), which runs until 2025.

The order was made following Dingle's convictions for theft and threatening behaviour at shops in St Helens.

Community Policing Inspector Matt Drennan said: "Criminal Behaviour Orders continue to be an extremely effective tool in tackling persistent offenders who have a negative impact on our communities, be it through anti-social behaviour, theft or other issues.

"The successful application for a CBO for Dingle shows this commitment. We work alongside businesses and residents, as well as support services, to ensure that those who continue to offend are offered the necessary support.

“However, to apply for such an order is the necessary consequence of a long pattern of behaviour adversely affecting those who live and work in the area, and we will continue to utilise them for the benefit of the community.”

  • Anyone with information on anti-social behaviour is asked to contact local officers, or pass information via @MerPolCC or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. People can also follow St Helens Police on Twitter and Facebook for updates, advice and events.
