Five people have been charged over stealing baby formula across Sydney.

Investigators say more than a million dollars' worth of the product has been taken.

The latest arrest came over the weekend when a 31-year-old man was detained at Sydney Airport after arriving on a flight from China.

He appeared in court yesterday and was granted bail to reappear next week.

Four other people are before the courts - all arrested after investigators searched two Sydney homes in August, seizing four thousand tins of baby formula, as well as large quantities of vitamins, and manuka honey.

They allege all the produce was stolen.
