"Well, mapping the options and showing you all the angles, that's my area of professional expertise. But making decisions, that is your domain, my friend."
―Lester Crest

Casing the Jewel Store is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given to Michael De Santa by Lester Crest.

MissionEdit

Michael meets Lester at his garment factory, before the duo drive to the Vangelico Jewellery Store. Once on location, Lester instructs him to walk in and use a pair of camera-glasses to take pictures of the displays, ventilation and alarm system.

Afterwards, the player must drive around the block and go upstairs to the roof via a building in renovation in order to scout for the store's ventilation sources.

Back at the garment factory, Lester sets up a planning board and offers two ways to execute the heist to Michael : 

Choosing the loud approach will unlock the following setup mission:

Choosing the smart approach will unlock the following setup missions :

CrewEdit

The following characters are available to complete Michael, Lester and Franklin's crew.

DriverEdit

  • Eddie Toh - If chosen, he'll give directions and bring dirt bikes, making it easier to drive in the tunnels. In the Loud approach, he'll manage to get all the jewelry.
  • Karim Denz - If chosen, he won't give directions while escaping and will have to stop inside the tunnels to get his bearings (only if Norm was chosen and fell off his bike), and the street bikes he provides will handle poorly in the mud. Also, in the Loud approach, he'll miss some of the jewelry.

GunmanEdit

  • Gustavo Mota - If chosen, he won't drop any diamonds in the Smart approach and won't crash his bike. However he'll competently keep the customers in check if the Loud approach is taken, thus if you took Karim as the driver, he won't get all the jewelry leaving you with $4.5M.
  • Packie McReary* - If chosen, he won't drop any diamonds in the Smart approach and won't crash his bike. He'll also competently keep the customers in check if the Loud approach is taken.
  • Norm Richards - If chosen, he misses a lot of diamonds during the heist bringing down your maximum take to about $4.5M in the Smart approach and in the Loud approach, one of the hostages tries to escape and Michael is forced to deal with them, also, with either approach, he crashes his bike in the tunnels, dropping his bag and adding casualty expenses. It is however possible for Franklin to grab his bag while riding over it.


HackerEdit

  • Paige Harris - If chosen, the player will have 90 seconds to grab the jewels.
  • Christian Feltz - If chosen, the player will have 60 seconds to grab the jewels.
  • Rickie Lukens** - If chosen, the player will only have 30 seconds to grab all the jewels.

For efficiency use Eddie Toh for the driver, Paige Harris as the hacker and Patrick McReary as the gunman. The smart approach works best as the quickest it can be done is in 46 seconds, but loud usually takes a minimum of 49 seconds.

Also if you choose loud, the gunman will have to keep all the hostages down and the driver will collect the jewelry with Michael instead, if Karim is the driver, he won't get all of the jewelry leaving you with $4.5M.
