Authorities say a convicted killer who gained notoriety for having a murder scene tattooed on his chest received unemployment benefits while he was in jail. 

Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker said Saturday that Anthony Garcia, nicknamed "Chopper," received more than $30,000 in fraudulent unemployment while in Los Angeles County jail from 2008 to 2010.

Parker says Garcia's father and two girlfriends would get the checks then cash them and deposit the money in the inmate accounts of Garcia and fellow gang members.

Garcia's father 47-year-old Juan Garcia, and girlfriends 45-year-old Sandra Jaimez and 25-year-old Cynthia Limas, were arrested Thursday on charges including grand theft.

Parker says authorities have not decided whether to charge Garcia.

He was convicted of the 2004 killing of a gang rival in Pico Rivera. The evidence against him included a tattoo on his chest of the crime scene.

How do you apply and keep getting unemployment when you are in jail?  The govt. really checks out people or continues to?  NOT.

Probably the same way my Bio sister has collected welfare and cash assistance for over 10 years.

 It has been extended so much I can't count the money my younger brother has received in the last few years.  My neice just turned 2 and I know he was collecting well before his girlfriend got pregnant.  Unemployment is supposed to help tide you over, not be your full time job.
