After four ‘ice creams’ are sold in a row, the [[Vice City Police Department|police]] become suspicious and will start chasing Tommy, with a one star [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era|wanted level]]. The wanted level is cumulative, so selling 4 'ice creams' while under a one star wanted level nets a two star wanted level. The easiest way to lose the cops is when you have one star wanted level is to run away from the cops until it's gone or to use one of the nearby [[Pay 'n' Spray]]s, but if the player has more than one wanted it is very convinient to go to the Pay 'n' Sparays as more than one wanted level cannot be evaded without it. Local gangs (such as the [[Cubans]], [[Haitians]] and the [[Patrol Invest Group|PIGs]]) will attack the Mr. Whoopee van if they see it. It is presumed this is because most gangs are involved in drug distribution and view Tommy as unwanted competition, although it isn't directly stated, making places like Little Havana and [[Starfish Island]] very inconvinient to sell 'ice cream' in.
