CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Four men involved in the Cherryville corruption investigation signed guilty pleas in federal court Thursday.
Reserve officer Frankie Dillenger, patrol officers David Mauney and Casey Crawford and civilian John Hendricks pled guilty to conspiracy and trafficking stolen goods. Mauney also pled guilty to money laundering.
