Police have dismantled a racket accused of stealing baby formula from Sydney retailers and shipping it overseas.

1000 tins of baby formula were discovered in a storage unit at Homebush and 350 tins at a home in Greystanes.

A 53-year-old man was charged with shoplifting while police allege a 40-year-old man received the stolen goods and exported them overseas.

Detective Inspector Andrew Evans told Ben Fordham they believe the baby formula was being shipped to China.

“It was like a plague of locusts, Ben, they were going in and taking all of the tins of baby formula.

“It’s just brazen and selfish.”
