Three Schaumburg police officers are charged with shaking down drug dealers; but charges against three men they arrested have now been dropped.

Prosecutors say officers John Cichy, Matthew Hudak and Terrance O’Brien were caught on camera breaking into a storage locker in Roselle and stealing what they believed was money from an out-of-town drug dealer.

The state’s attorney’s office says the officers have lost their credibility; authorities have since released 15 of 19 people the officers recently arrested on drug charges.
