Cleaning out the Bureau is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V for Michael De Santa with the help of Lester Crest. It is the first part of the fifth heist mission.


Michael arrives at Darnell Bros. where he meets Lester. Soon, the two are joined by FIB agents Dave Norton and Steve Haines. Haines explains that evidence regarding his illegal activity is starting to surface; he needs Michael to destroy that evidence, but the only way to do so is by breaking into FIB Headquarters. Haines states that if Michael does this large favor, Haines will delete Michael's files. Michael tells Haines that this is the last job Michael will perform. Haines blithely agrees and he and Norton leave.

Michael and Lester drive to FIB Headquarters. On the way, Lester lays out his plan. They will gain entrance to the building by assuming the identity of one of the building's janitors. Lester even has the man picked out, one Harvey Molina. Michael and Lester arrive at the entrance to the Headquarters' garage. When Molina exits, the two tail him to his apartment on Las Lagunas Blvd. in West Vinewood. Michael follows Molina into his apartment, and there asks to purchase Molina's work clothes and ID. Molina readily agrees and Michael takes the stuff and leaves.

Michael and Lester return to Darnell Bros. where Franklin is waiting. In addition to the stuff Michael took from Molina, Lester also needs a physical copy of the architectural plans for FIB Headquarters. These are in the possession of Chip Peterson, the building's designer, who has an office in Backlot City. Franklin agrees to tail Peterson to get the plans. Their business, for the moment, concluded, the mission ends.

  • Amanda De Santa - "Just let me know you're ok?"
  • Tracey De Santa - "Hi Dad. Hope you're staying out of trouble and not just eating junk food. Things are going great for me, looks like that TV thing might work out after all. Take care of yourself PLEASE!!!"
  • Jimmy De Santa - "This bouncing from crib to crib sleeping on couches blows dick. I was thinking maybe you could rent an apartment for me and then you could even crash there sometimes when you got really lonely (you'd have to call ahead of course)?"


  • While waiting for the janitor to leave, one of Lester's comments, "This is not the car we're looking for," may be a reference to the famous line from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
  • If Michael will horn, while tailing janitor, Lester would comment about that as it might bring the attention of janitor. Although this doesn't cause to mission failure.
  • Some time after this mission, Franklin will send Michael an text message saying that he found something about the architect, if the player switch to Franklin after receiving this message, he will immediatly start the mission Architect's Plans.
