Four accused members of the "Lake Boyz" gang appeared in court Monday for jury selection.

Last year, 21 members of the "Lake Boyz" were arrested in Operation Great Lakes.  They were charged with racketeering and corruption. 

Prosecutors used a state law designed to crackdown on organized crime.

Fort Myers police say the members were based in the Harlem Lakes neighborhood
