Snitch Hitch is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance Vance from his hotel room in Downtown, Vice City.


Lance is on the phone when Victor suddenly comes in and smashes the phone on the floor. Angrily he threatens Lance just as their mother, Janet Vance appears with her boyfriend, Javier. After a brief argument inside, Lance tells Victor about some "files" about the big shipment coming to the city at the Escobar International Airport. Once inside, Lance meets the guy with the files who informs them of having sold it to someone else. The one with the files is soon leaving with a plane at the airport. Lance and Victor make their way to the airport and kill all the guards as Lance goes inside the plane he finds the files and a lot of other "stylish" stuff. Victor kills all the attacking Bikers and the mission is complete.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Take Lance to the airport
  • Get the files from the goons
  • Kill the guards
  • Kill those bikers


The reward for completing the mission is $1,000 and if the player has completed the mission The Bum Deal, unlocks the mission From Zero to Hero.


  • Despite this mission coming well into the storyline of the game, the player receives a brief tutorial on how map place markers work, although it is possible that players will already be familiar with this, if they played GTA San Andreas or GTA Liberty City Stories before.
  • The Cheetah's speed comes in handy during the time-limited drive to the airport, however it can also be damaged easier by high-speed collisions. To avoid the car getting further damage at the airport, avoid parking right by the terminal door, otherwise other motorists have a tendency to collide into the vehicle, making it hazardous to access when the final portion of the mission begins.


  • When Lance is on the phone, he says "Pink. No, blue. No, white, I'll take all three." These are the colors of the suits that he appears wearing in his appearances: pink refers to the one Lance wears in his artwork in GTA Vice City, blue is the one he wears in later VCS missions, and white is the one he is seen wearing throughout the events of GTA Vice City.
  • Even after you leave Escobar International, the stationary plane remains there. However, after activating a mission, it disappears.
  • The dealer's face models a Mendez goon.
  • This is the only mission where you can see Vic's mom in personal, later in the missions she will just be mentioned indicating she disappeared after stealing her son's coke.
