Three Chicago Cops Accused of Taking Over Drug Ring

Three Schaumburg police officers have admitted robbing drug dealers, taking their money and selling their drugs, with one of the cops telling investigators he did "it all for the thrill of it," according to prosecutors.

John Cichy, 30, Matthew Hudak, 29, and Terrance O’Brien, 47, were captured on undercover video surveillance and audio recordings stealing money and drugs from the dealers, and all three have made incriminating statements, prosecutor Audriana Anderson said in court this morning.

"Everything you have on tape, I did. You got me on that," Anderson quoted Hudak as telling authorities. O'Brien told investigators they did "it all for the thrill of it," she said.
