Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

After the deadly Mulholland Intersection shoot-out with the Ballas in Los Santos, Carl Johnson is forced by C.R.A.S.H. officers Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Pulaski to perform various tasks for them, using the recent incarceration of Carl's brother Sweet as leverage. Tenpenny and Pulaski deposit Carl in the remote town of Angel Pine in Whetstone, a region of Flint County in San Andreas. Carl, who has been stripped of all weapons and given only a camera, is ordered to flush out and murder a witness who is hiding in a cabin on nearby Mount Chiliad. He rushes up the side of the mountain to find a cabin closely guarded by the FBI. By creating a commotion, Carl succeeds in luring the terrified witness from the cabin, who races down the mountain in a car. After chasing him down, Carl kills him and photographs his body as proof for Tenpenny and Pulaski that their problem has been taken care of.

After Catalina's first robbery, CJ receives a call from a strange subject, it turns out to be The Truth. During the call, The Truth asks him to go to a Hotel in Angel Pine. Carl arrives st the Hotel, and there is Tenpenny smoking a bong. Then, The Truth appears, and Tenpenny leaves the Hotel and tells him to talk a while with Carl. The Truth tells Carl that he has problems with some maniacs of survival, extreme right-wing,fascist farmers. They have a Combine Harvester. The mission of CJ is to go in them factory and to steal it.

After Carl takes Combine Harvester to The Truth's Farm, he receives a call from Cesar. The latter tells Carl that his gang is dissolved, so he had to leave Los Santos, and now he and Kendl are in CJ's roulotte. Once CJ reaches the roulotte, Cesar tells him that he intends to return back in Los Santos to restore the order in the neighborhood, but Carl and Kendl dissuade him from doing so. Carl tries to calm Cesar, but him reminds and explains to Carl that Big Smoke and the C.R.A.S.H. team are behind the drug dealing. Carl responds to Cesar with incredulity, arguing that Big Smoke would never get involved in drug dealing, and that the drug epidemic is the fault of the C.R.A.S.H. team. Both Kendl and Cesar try to convince Carl of Smoke's responsibility for the dealing and Balla/LSPD ambush of the Grove Street Families, but Carl is still unwilling to believe them. Deciding to monitor the highway from San Fierro to Los Santos for any suspicious activity, Carl leaves the trailer after telling the pair to lay low for a while.

After Carl moves to the Doherty Garage, Cesar Vialpando informs him about a Ballas drug meeting convoy moving from Mulholland Intersection. Carl meets Cesar and then they arrive at Angel Pine, where the Ballas were last seen heading. They climb into the Lovin' A Loan building and take photos of Ryder, T-Bone Mendez, Jizzy. B and Mike Toreno as they head inside the Cluckin' Bell outlet. Carl then drives to a nearby petrol bunk and then Carl and Cesar split up.

During the mission Lure, Carl is working for the San Fierro Triads when one of the gang's leaders, Ran Fa Li, is targeted by the Da Nang Boys, and Carl offers himself as a decoy to lure them out of the city. Carl drives the decoy car to the Angel Pine Sawmill, where a group of ambushers on bikes begin to chase and attack the car from behind. Carl eventually stops after Woozie has successfully taken Ran Fa Li into safety, after which the bikers realize it was a decoy.

Later in the story, Angel Pine returns, this time as the setting for the air-drop Carl is asked to perform by Mike Toreno. In order to stay within the diligent gaze of those watching him, Toreno compels Carl to fly a Rustler to Angel Pine for him in order to drop supplies to his men holed up there. Carl is given a very limited time to fly over topographically diverse terrain from the abandoned airstrip in Bone County to Angel Pine and back, all while remaining below radar detection range.
