Accused ex-cop free on bond, facing theft charge
A former Schaumburg police officer posted bail after he and two former colleagues were formally charged with stealing from drug dealers, then selling their drugs.
Matthew Hudak posted $35,000 cash Monday evening, just hours after pleading not guilty.
John Cichy and Terrance O’Brien also pleaded not guilty.
Police say a sting operation captured the men on camera, stealing from a storage locker they believed was rented by an out-of-town drug dealer.
