Prosecutors say they have effectively dismantled a once powerful Harlem gang.

Fourteen members of the "137th Street" crew have been indicted.

Authorities say the charges come after a lengthy investigation involving surveillance video and recordings of jail house conversations.

A dozen of them are expected in court later today.
