More Arrests In Sydney Baby Formula Theft Ring

Five people have been charged over the alleged coordinated theft of more than $1 million worth of baby formula across Sydney.

The latest arrest came on Saturday, when a 31-year-old man was detained at Sydney Airport after he arrived on a flight from China.

The Carlingford man was charged and appeared at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday, where he was granted strict bail.

He will reappear at Parramatta Local Court on January 30.

In August, investigators from Strike Force Dungv searched two homes in Carlingford and seized 4000 tins of baby formula, large quantities of vitamins, and manuka honey; all of which were allegedly stolen.

They also seized more than $215,000 in cash, allegedly the proceeds of crime.

A 48-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man were charged at that time and remain before the courts.

Police will allege in court that the two men and woman were part of an organised syndicate receiving more than $1 million worth of stolen products, including baby formula and health supplements, which were then on-sold overseas.
