I'd suggest you tell PressCrew to include code that intercepts and
removes theme update information.

add_filter('pre_set_site_transient_update_themes', 'infinity_remove_update');

function infinity_remove_update($checked_data) {
   $theme_base = basename(get_template_directory());
   return $checked_data;

Somewhere in their functions.php should do the trick. They'd obviously
need to check that though.
