- "Another day, another scumbag off the street."
- ―Officer Carver
Officer Carver was scheduled to be a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who was dropped during the development of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Originally Carver appeared in the cut mission Doberman and also in the beta Badlands mission where he appeared as The Informant himself instead of the actual pedestrian model from the final version. His model still exists in the game files.
Carver is a member of the Los Santos Police Department who begins to close the net around fellow officers Frank Tenpenny, Eddie Pulaski, Ralph Pendelbury and Jimmy Hernandez. Carver attempts to have Poncho arrested in the hope that he will talk. Tenpenny orders Carl Johnson to kill Poncho during the mission Doberman. Later he appears again in the mission Badlands originally as The Informant where Carl Johnson kills him and takes his photograph.
