These include his sister's house where a vehicle was seized, and the homes and offices of car dealer Durand Snyman, and SAPS contractor, Keith Keating.

Documents allegedly showing Phahlane's involvement in the fabrication of cases against Ipid head, Robert McBride and Ipid investigators were found at one of the properties.

In June, Phahlane was suspended after being accused of fraud and corruption for allegedly taking bribes to secure police tenders for a specific company.
