Joe is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing as a stranger/freak in Grand Theft Auto V.


Joe is a member of the Civil Border Patrol, alongside his best friend Josef, a Russian immigrant obsessively fascinated with America, and both operate in Sandy Shores, where they hunt illegal immigrants in order to try and deport them back to their home countries, though most of the time they end up harassing legal citizens of the United States of Hispanic heritage.

Events of GTA V

During their missions, Joe and Josef employ Trevor Philips twice to help them hunt down supposed illegal aliens. Trevor, being a Canadian immigrant himself dislikes the duo, but goes along with them because the monetary reward. After his second outing with the duo, Trevor re-encounters Manuel, one of the men arrested during his second tour with the Patrol, who was a legal resident of the US; his family having lived in San Andreas for two hundred years, well before it was incorporated into the US. Manuel shames Trevor for his actions and, in a regretful fit of rage, Trevor tracks down Joe and Josef to a nearby farm and attacks them. After Josef is killed, Joe tries to escape on a Tractor, but Trevor stops him and kills him as well.
