A man is behind bars after police pursued an allegedly stolen truck filled with looted baby formula in Sydney's west.

NSW Police say the man sped off after he was spotted driving the vehicle in Condell Park on Tuesday morning.

Police cut short their pursuit due to safety concerns but officers later found the truck at an industrial complex and arrested a 39-year-old man.

It is alleged the truck's baby formula had been stolen in a break-and-enter in Regents Park earlier on Tuesday.

The truck driver, who was wanted on two warrants, was refused bail to appear at Bankstown Local Court on November 8 charged with failing to stop in a police pursuit and driving while disqualified.

Police are investigating the stolen truck and formula.

Police on Thursday revealed details of the incident after video footage emerged of shoppers at a Coles supermarket in Melbourne grabbing baby formula before staff even had the time to put the tins on shelves.
