Cilli: "Marron! Why am I surrounded by so many fucking idiots?!"
Toni: "Oh, I don't know. 'Birds of a feather'?"
Cilli: "Oh, you're a fucking comedian! Well, laugh this off, wise-guy. You're the one who's gonna clean this shit up for me! Now, get over there and drag those morons back here!"
Vincenzo Cilli tells Toni Cipriani to rescue his heist crew

Smash and Grab is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Vincenzo Cilli from his warehouse in Atlantic Quays, Portland Island, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Vincenzo's warehouse in Atlantic Quays to get more work. Vincenzo is not happy to see Toni, since he is furious about three members of the gang who have botched up a job at the AMCo. Petrol Station in Harwood. Toni pokes fun at Vincenzo, who then sends him to rescue the gang from the Liberty City Police Department officers.

Toni grabs a four-door vehicle and drives to the petrol station in Harwood. After entering the petrol station, the Leone Family gang members get in the car and Toni drives to the Pay 'n' Spray in Red Light District and loses the police. Toni then drives to Vincenzo's warehouse in Atlantic Quays to complete the mission.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get a four seater car.
  • Go and rescue Vincenzo's men.
  • Lose the cops!
  • Take the gang to Vincenzo's.


The reward for completing the mission is $1,000, as well as unlocking the missions Hot Wheels and Snappy Dresser.

Possible Deaths


  • Any vehicle brought to Vincenzo's place will disappear after the cutscene. In order to continue the mission, a four-door vehicle must be obtained. There is usually a black Kuruma parked right next to Vincenzo's building. A "Leone" health bar appears after the cutscene and begins to deplete, so the player needs to obtain a suitable vehicle as quickly as possible.
  • The most likely cause of mission failure is driving over a spike belt, which renders vehicles virtually uncontrollable. (This also applies to the Hot Wheels mission that follows.)
  • The mission will not fail if any Leone members get yanked out of the car - just head to the Pay 'n Spray to lose the heat then come back and pick him up later. The wanted level won't come back.
