A former Schaumburg police officer charged with running a drug ring will be free Monday after posting $35,000 in bail.

A judge approved Matthew Hudak's release after his sister testified that a family member provided the money.

Hudak, and other former Schaumburg officers Terrance O'Brien and John Cichy -- are accused of stealing and reselling illegal drugs seized during arrests. They've all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Cichy is up for a bond hearing Tuesday. O'Brien is scheduled for one in two weeks.
