Local Liquor Store is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, in which Carl Johnson attempts another robbery with his crime partner, Catalina.

Mission Brief

Carl and Catalina arrive at the liquor store, but some other robbers get there, and take the money from the store. Carl and Catalina give a chase.


You will be on a Quad which has been taken from one of the four bandits (or, alternately, a vehicle of your choosing - see Trivia, below), and you have to chase the other three bandits in order to take the money. Be careful though, as the Quad is wobbly at times, but is a good off-road vehicle. Follow them, and either let Catalina kill them, or help her out by shooting forward your SMG. Once you have killed a bandit, he may drop a briefcase, but continue pursuing the other bandits and get back on the briefcase later. Continue killing them while on your Quad. Once you have killed all, collect the two briefcases dropped by two bandits, and make your way back to Catalina's Hideout in Fern Ridge.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Chase and kill the bandits
  • Pick up the briefcase
  • Chase and kill the bandits
  • Pick up the briefcase
  • Chase and kill the bandit
  • Pick up the briefcase
  • Take Catalina back to the hideout


The reward is $1000.


  • The quad has very poor handling off-road and a tendency to roll over. Fortunately, unlike many other "race"-like levels, the vehicle you arrive in does not disappear after the cutscene, and there is sufficient time to exit the quad and enter your vehicle of choice. If you have high motorbike skills, the NRG-500 is an excellent choice for this level. As a bonus of using a motorcycle, Carl is able to shoot forwards from the bike, making it easier to kill the robbers as both his and Catalina's firepower is combined.
  • The bridge jump that takes place during the chase counts as a Unique Stunt Jump (a second jump award is given for jumping the bridge in the opposite direction, something that an unaware player might do when backtracking to pick up the suitcases).
  • The chase will end in the rural area of homes near the train tunnel where the Catalyst mission takes place. There, the cowboys will fight and shoot CJ and Catalina.
  • The Robber was an usual NPC which can be spawn throughout Red County.
