Baby formula theft: Police make fifth arrest in SydneyBy 9NEWS 6:08am Jan 21, 2019

Police have charged a fifth person over their alleged involvement in a global crime syndicate accused of orchestrating the $1 million theft of baby formula across Sydney.

The 31-year-old man was arrested at Sydney Airport on Saturday after he arrived from China.

It comes after the arrest of a woman, 29, earlier this month and a 53-year-old man last December.


The arrests were part of Strike Force Dungv, set up by NSW Police to investigate the theft and distribution of baby formula and vitamins.

Police will allege the two men and women 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.

Last February, detectives were tipped off by retailers about the coordinated theft of the items across Sydney.

In August, police arrested a woman, 48, and a 35-year-old man after officers seized 4000 tins of baby formula, large quantities of vitamins and Manuka honey from two homes in Carlingford, north-west Sydney.


They remain before the courts.

Police said the five accused were part of a “well-coordinated” crime syndicate.

“This has been a meticulous investigation, with detectives now putting five people before the courts and disrupting a well-coordinated theft syndicate,” Detective Superintendent Daniel Doherty said.

“Police will continue to pursue those who seek to make a quick buck at the disadvantage of others and will always strive to stamp out unscrupulous activity.”

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
