Convicted murderer, Anthony Garcia, is getting more notoriety than his murder-scene tattoos, this time for collecting unemployment while sitting in a Los Angeles jail.
Authorities say Garcia’s 47-year-old father, Juan Garcia and his two girlfriends Sandra Jimenez and Cynthia Limas collected his unemployment checks from 2008-2010, cashed them and deposited the funds into Garcia’s account and that of other gang members.
Garcia, a gang member, is in jail for the 2004 killing of rival gang member John Juarez. The murder scene, that included a Pico Rivera liquor store and a character getting shot, was proudly tattooed on Garcia’s chest, which helped authorities convict him.
Los Angeles authorities believe Garcia collected more than $30,000 in benefits illegally. Garcia father and the girlfriends have been arrested on grand theft charges.
