A fourth man will front court over an alleged Sydney ice syndicate, with police having seized about $45 million-worth of the drug.

The latest arrest, of a 28-year-old Chinese national, was made in Melbourne on Friday with police saying he fled there by taxi - racking up a fare of nearly $4500.

The first arrest was made in Sydney's Haymarket on July 22 when police stopped a driver for talking on his mobile phone and allegedly found 3kg of methylamphetamine in his car.

The 28-year-old man was extradited to NSW and charged with supplying a large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug.

He has been refused bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.

The three other men remain before the courts.
