Johannesburg - Stolen Woolworths products worth about R700 000 were recovered in a warehouse in Amalgam on Wednesday, Gauteng police said.

A 37-year-old Ethiopian man who was arrested on Tuesday gave police information about the goods at the warehouse, said Warrant Officer Gordon Billing.

The man was arrested in a separate case involving the hijacking of a truck with Unilever products in Boksburg North in June.

A truck carrying Woolworths products was hijacked in June in Heidelberg.

The Ethiopian man was facing charges of possession of suspected stolen property.
