- Michael: "I thought you were the corrupt division."
- Dave: "Corrupt? Only a little. Definitely below average."
- ―Michael and Dave during "The Wrap Up".
At some point prior to 2004, Dave Norton began working in the FIB.
Events of GTA V
In 2004, during the events of "Prologue", Dave shoots Michael Townley and Brad during their escape after a robbery in Ludendorff, but he fails to shoot Trevor Philips. Brad dies but Michael survives and Norton allows Michael to provide information to the Bureau in exchange for a new identity, a pension and a relocation to Los Santos. Brad is buried as Michael Townley to aid the ruse, but the official story says that Brad is in prison.
Some time later, Dave intercepts a letter to Brad. The letter has no name but it came from Sandy Shores; Norton deduces that it was written by Trevor. Assuming Brad's identity he begins corresponding with Trevor, using this as a way to keep track of him.
For the next nine years Michael lives in Los Santos under the surname De Santa, with Dave being in touch with him. Norton arrives at Michael's mansion after Michael and his protege, Franklin Clinton, robbed a jewel store, warning the former that this act will attract Trevor.
Working with Michael
Norton's boss Steve Haines learns about Norton's dealings with the trio. The FIB is involved in a feud with the IAA over government funding, and Haines sees the trio of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as useful agents.
Haines wants to get rid of Michael so he'll be able to get out clean of the suspicions against him, leading Norton to briefly turn against him during a massive shootout between the FIB, the IAA and Merryweather, during which Dave gets help from both Michael and Trevor. After clearing their way to escape, Dave takes a car and drive off, telling Michael not to contact with him until he will be sure he is not followed by any of the organizations.
Dave tries to calm down Haines, who agrees to spare Michael, but wants Trevor dead. Dave and Haines encounter Fraknlin, who is ordered by Haines to kill Trevor, while Haines' associate Devin Weston tells Franklin to assassinate Michael.
If Franklin chooses to alert both Michael and Trevor, the trio will kill all of their major enemies, including Haines and Weston. Afterwards, Dave will sends messages to Trevor and Michael, revealing to Trevor that he was the one who sent the emails posing as Brad (as well as telling to stop cause trouble), and telling the latter that he'll become the new host of The Underbelly Of Paradise after Haines' demise. He also phones Michael to say final goodbye, and both men conclude the conversation on good terms.
