No evidence against cops in house robbery case

2012-10-25 07:41

There was no evidence to suggest that police officers were involved in a robbery at the home of a Johannesburg legal adviser.

“We have seen the video footage but we don’t have any evidence of police cars involved in this,” Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said today.

“We are busy taking statements from witnesses and the matter will be investigated.”

A house robbery case has been opened.

Raymondt Dicks was at his home in Midrand with his son and a friend on Saturday when six men stormed into the house and tied them up, the Star newspaper reported yesterday.

Dicks is a legal adviser to the group NewERA (New Economic Rights Alliance), which has launched a court case against four major banks in the country including SA Reserve Bank.

He is also representing author Michael Tellinger, who is suing Standard Bank for civil fraud.

Video footage caught on hidden cameras showed what appeared to be three police cars, two vans and one Ford Escort, driving backwards and forwards on the 600m-long street while the robbery took place.

Dicks told the publication the footage showed police vans blocking the road while the robbers entered his property.

Dicks and his son were made to hand over their bank cards and their PINs, and their bank accounts were cleared out.

A television set, speakers, amplifier, computer and cell phones were also taken.

Dicks believed the police vehicles were loaded with items stolen during the robbery.
