A Lithuanian man allegedly stole about $10,000 worth of razors from more than 20 stores during a one-day road trip from Sydney to Port Macquarie.

The 26-year-old was allegedly caught with more than 270 packages of stolen razors and blades when police stopped the unregistered vehicle he was driving on the Pacific Highway on Wednesday afternoon.

Police allege the man stole the razors and blades from as many as 28 retailers across about 15 towns including Gloucester, Wingham, Lake Innes and Jesmond over a 24-hour period.

He was charged with having suspected stolen goods and has been granted strict conditional bail to appear at Forster Local Court next month.
