CHARLOTTE, N.C.--John Hendricks, one of the six Cherryville men accused of corruption, posted bond on Friday and is out of jail.
The FBI said Operation "Blue Crush" began in May and August of 2012.
A special agent said there are audio and video recordings to prove the men knew what they were doing was illegal.
They're accused of offering protection to trucks transporting stolen goods through the area.
Five of the men were at one time with the Cherryville Police Department or the Gaston County Sheriff's Office.
In court on Friday, all six pleaded not guilty.
Dozens of family and friends were in court to show their support.
"I've known Casey for over 13 years. This is completely out of character. I don't think all the details have all been revealed yet," said friend of Casey Crawford, Chris Beam.
Casey Crawford's case was continued until Monday.
David Mauney is still in jail on a $50,000 dollar bond.
Frankie Dellinger's bond was denied.
Wesley Golden and Mark Hoyle waived their bond hearing until another day.
