Three Cops Arrested on Drug Charges; Police Search Officer's Algonquin Home

Three Schaumburg Police Department officers were arrested by U.S. Drug Enforcement agents on Wednesday.

Three Schaumburg cops have been arrested for robbing drug dealers following an investigation that lead authorities to one of the officers' homes, which is in Algonquin, Wednesday night, according to media reports. 

U.S. Drug Enforcement agents arrested John Cichy, Matthew Hudak and Terrance O’Brien on Wednesday and the three Schaumburg police officers had a court appearance this morning in DuPage County, according to the Chicago Tribune.

WBBM Radio reported that bond was set at $750,000 for each officer in the case.

The officers are accused of selling marijuana and cocaine in DuPage County after they took the drugs from police seizures "and used a former informant to unload the product," according to the Daily Herald. 

The officers face charges of manufacturing and delivering cocaine, armed violence and theft, according to the Chicago Tribune. The officers have been placed on administrative leave, according to the Daily Herald.

Cynthia , you are correct. The ones that did vote for Obama all get some nice concessions. Once America sees the next four year results it will be to late. 911 will look like a picnic with friends at the lake house when he is done . Like a scary movie actually...... Wait for next weeks headlines..... The Movie has a part 2

I agree Tracy, my fiance is a police officer and he too puts his life on the line everytime he walks out the door. Its amazing to me how many people slam police officers , but when they need help, who do they call? Sure as hell not their friends, they call the police. Imagine if we didn't have police officers, what would this world be like. I don't even want to think about it. Not all police officers are on the take or dirty cops. Yes there are some out there, but don't catigorize all of them. Thank you Tracy, I stand beside you.
