LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A federal judge gave Charles Horky a personal recognizance bond Thursday, meaning he will be released and is expected to show up to court on his own.

A federal indictment accuses Horky, owner of local limousine service CLS Nevada, of using his business as a front for crime.

The FBI raided the business Thursday.

The federal indictment alleges the 52-year-old would collect fees from his limo drivers knowing they were making a profit from selling drugs and facilitating illegal prostitution.

Thursday, Horky appeared in federal court and pleaded not guilty; so did eight others charged including high-ranking company employees, limo drivers and business associates.

Those business associates are accused of providing some of the meth and cocaine that some of the limo drivers would allegedly sell.

In the indictment, alleged phone conversations are written out showing Horky would call some of his limousine drivers to order prostitutes for clients.

There are also accusations the limousine company tacked on unauthorized charges to customers' credit cards, allegedly defrauding American Express out of $2.8 million.

Horky and his two top aides are accused of creating a scheme to cash company checks, knowing there were not enough funds.

The indictment says in 2010 alone, the alleged suspects cashed more than 1,500 checks.

The indictment said they received more than $2.4 million as a result.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
