Jury selection begins Monday morning in the federal fraud trial of a former Melrose Park police chief and two of his underlings. Federal prosecutors accuse former chief Vito Scavo, his deputy chief Gary Montino and former officer Michael Wynn of using the department personnel and resources for a private security company.

Scavo and his co-defendants are also accused of shaking down businesses in Melrose Park to use the security guards they controlled.
