The owner and three employees of a New York City parking company that catered to film crews have been charged with blending identity theft and unemployment insurance fraud to steal about $95,000 worth of benefits.

Parking and Security Services Inc. owner Jose Tejada was awaiting arraignment Monday on charges including grand larceny. Three managers pleaded not guilty.

A woman who answered a possible phone number for Tejada's Palisades Park, N.J., home said she wasn't a relative. No telephone number for the company could be found.

Manhattan prosecutors say the men commandeered the identities of more than 100 ex-employees and others to get unemployment benefits in their names.

State labor officials say about $22,000 came from federal economic stimulus funds.
