Judge reduces bail for 2 ex-officers charged with running drug ring

A judge reduces bail for two former Schaumburg police officers charged with running a drug ring.

John Cichy, Matthew Hudak, and Terrance O’Brien are accused of stealing money and narcotics from drug dealers, and then arranging to sell those narcotics.

The judge lowered the bail for Cichy to $250,000. He also reduced it for O’Brien to $300,000 Hudak will ask for a reduction at a hearing later today.

Cichy and O’Brien resigned from the force on Tuesday, and Hudak stepped-down last week.

A total of seven cases connected to the officers have been dismissed so far, and prosecutors expect 15 to be dropped eventually.

    Wow lol… Look at these guys!!! I bet two of them still live with their parents and probably beat their wives or husbands… LOL These are Schaumburg's standards for DETECTIVES!!! ??? I can tell just by looking at them (and of course by the dumbest criminal act anyone could ever do and get caught for) that the only chance of Schaumburg ever solving crimes is if the perpetrators turn themselves in!!! LOL I am in such disbelief that these high school cheerleaders are the top picks for detectives!!! I guess the criminal world doesn't look so bad now as long as it's in Schaumburg – I mean these guys couldn't catch my grandmother if she stole their police cars with them in it!!! I just can't believe it… Say hello to Big Bob!! I hope they like c**kmeat sandwitches!!!

    Everyone is so focused on Chicago and their crimes, until the overlook the obvious. There are crimes being committed right outside of Chicago and no one is paying any attention.
