LOS ANGELES — A killer made famous for having a murder scene tattooed on his chest received unemployment benefits while he was in Los Angeles County Jail, authorities said.

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

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, Parker said.

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. There was no word on whether Garcia also would face charges.

Garcia 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.
