Johannesburg - It was not clear whether vehicles at the home of a Johannesburg legal adviser belonged to the police, a police spokesperson said on Thursday.

"Police have viewed the closed circuit television footage and it is not clear whether the vehicles at the scene were police vehicles or not," Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said in a statement.

"Forensic analysis of the footage will be done to analyse the crime scene as well as identify the suspects."

He said allegations that police members were involved in the house robbery were being investigated.

Raymond 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 on Wednesday.

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

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

According to the newspaper, video footage caught on hidden cameras showed what appeared to be three police cars, two vans and a Ford Escort, driving back and forth on the 600m-long street while the robbery took place.

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

He and his son were made to hand over their bank cards and their personal identification numbers, and their bank accounts were cleared out.

A television set, speakers, an amplifier, a computer and cellphones were taken.

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