Authorities have confirmed that Anthony Garcia, a convicted killer known for having a murder scene tattooed on his chest, received fraudulent unemployment while in Los Angeles County jail from 2008 to 2010, FOX News is reporting. Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said that Garcia, nicknamed Chopper, received more than $30,000 in the fraudulent benefits. Parker added that his father and two girlfriends would cash the checks and deposit the money in his and other gang member inmate accounts.

Garcia’s father, Juan Garcia, and his girlfriends, Sandra Jaimez and Cynthia Limas, were arrested on March 1, 2012 on several charges, including grand theft. Police have not yet decided if they’ll charge Garcia, who was convicted of the 2004 killing of a gang rival in Pico Rivera. The evidence against him included the tattoo on his chest.
